Writing on Instagram, Chelsea posted : “Have a great birthday, @Mikel_John_Obi! 🥳 #CFC #Chelsea”.

The post has been liked by 113,287 Instagram users, including Mikel, and drew reactions from ex-Chelsea captain John Terry and former goalkeeper Petr Čech.

Replying to the post, Cech said : “Happy birthday 🎂🥳@Mikel_John_Obi”.

Terry added : “Happy Birthday @mikel_john_obi Love ya geez 💙”.

Mikel was crowned Chelsea’s Young Player of the Year in his first season in England.
