Some of the football played at Stamford Bridge this season certainly has been divine, which perhaps explains why one in five children in London believe Jose Mourinho's squad includes a certain Jesus Christ.

This bombshell has been questioning things. RE lessons are no longer the rigorous intellectual seminars of my day (I'm serious!), either that or children in Brent Cross are a mischievous bunch.
