Petr Cech hailed Chelsea's Champions League triumph as a "revolt" against their doubters following his penalty shoot-out heroics against Bayern Munich.

The Blues goalkeeper was in tears after helping end the club's agonising wait for European Cup glory. Chelsea becoming kings of Europe looked a laughable prospect three months ago after they lost their last-16 first leg against Napoli 3-1. But they repeatedly defied the doom-mongers before stunning Bayern 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

"It was a kind of revolt against everybody," Cech said.
