John Terry revealed how nine years of Champions League heartache simply melted away after he and Chelsea finally got their hands on the European Cup.

Even Terry's own disappointment at his self-inflicted suspension for Saturday's epic triumph over Bayern Munich vanished as he and stand-in captain Frank Lampard hoisted aloft the biggest prize in club football against all the odds.

It ended an odyssey both Terry and Roman Abramovich had set out on when the latter bought Chelsea in 2003. Describing it as his greatest moment in football, Terry said: "Incredible feeling. I've waited so long for it, you know, and for it to finally be here wipes away all those bad memories."
