How can you measure success these days?

Most footballers look towards their trophy cabinets to judge whether their professional career has been a success but for Didier Drogba, can call upon more than the medals he won with Chelsea.

Drogba, who spent eight success-filled years with Chelsea, has been given his own comic book in France to immortalise the legend he has created for himself throughout his career.

The illustration will tell the remarkable story of Drogba's emergence from Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, leading towards his Premier League and Champions League winning exploits while at Stamford Bridge.

It will also document his time in Turkey with Galatasaray, who he subsequently joined after leaving Chelsea for a short spell in China.

Plans are underway to get the comic book published in Brazil ahead of his World Cup appearance and there is also hope that a British version will be made.

Drogba is a cult hero in west London, where he scored 157 goals in 341 games. Of course the last of those goals was the equaliser in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

In a match that will go down in Chelsea folklore, Dorgba eventually scored the winning penalty in the shootout, confirming his status a superhero worthy of his own comic book.
