'Boring, boring Chelsea?' Didier Drogba releases brilliant head tennis video of teammates at training
Seven Chelsea players head the ball to each other before John Obi Mikel knocks the ball into a bin

Chelsea have received a lot of flak this week for their boring, defensive style of play that has brought them to within five points of the Premier League title.
Arsenal fans sang "boring, boring Chelsea" at the end of the 0-0 draw with the Emirates prompting Jose Mourinho to snap back that it was "boring not to win a title in 10 years".
Ahead of their crucial game with Leicester City, a group of Chelsea players have now tried to shed the 'boring' tag - posting a brilliant video of head tennis.
The group of seven players are sat around a long table at St George's Park ahead of the game at the King Power Stadium.
Starting with right-back Branislav Ivanovic, the Serbian heads to Loic Remy, who goes to Eden Hazard, John Terry, Didier Drobga, Thibaut Courtois, then John Obi Mikel.
The seven players keep it up before Mikel - somewhat surprisingly for a player who has only scored five goals in more than 300 Chelsea appearances - manages to find the target.
The group go wild and celebrate with Drogba posting the video to Instagram with the caption 'Boring boring Chelseaaaa!!!!!'
Jose Mourinho will probably be expecting similar celebrations after the game against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
