John Terry mocked for crying after Chelsea defeat

Chelsea captain John Terry was ruthlessly mocked by people on Twitter last night after he appeared to get a little emotional following his side's 3-1 Champions League semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid.

The 33-year-old was comforted by several Atletico players after welling up after the full-time whistle.

It's not the first time Terry has got a little teary after a Champions League match. He famously shed a few tears after the 2008 final in Moscow, where he missed a crucial penalty against the eventual winners Manchester United.

The central defender, who has been magnificent this season, probably felt this was one of his last opportunities to play in another Champions League final and put the rest the ghosts of 2008.

Although Chelsea won the Champions League two years ago, Terry did not play in the final after receiving a straight red card in the semi-finals against Barcelona for a kick on Alexis Sanchez.

Former England captain Terry has never been the most popular footballer - particularly in recent years - and few felt too much sympathy with the Blues' skipper when he got emotional last night.

Indeed, there were a few - funny or harsh, depending on your personal point of view - mocked up images of Terry as a toy baby doll doing the rounds on Twitter last night, one of which we've included as the main image.
