Abramovich hasn’t watched his side live in the UK since 2018 due to visa issues, but was caught on cameras revelling in the celebrations from the Blues’ second European Cup.

The Russian billionaire also gave club captain Cesar Azpilicueta a big hug, with the Spaniard telling him: “I don’t know where the trophy is.

“But we’re giving it to you because it yours.”

To which a gleeful Abramovich simply said: “Thank you.”

The 54-year-old is then seen shaking hands with German gaffer Tuchel in what was the their first meeting since his appointment in January.

Commenting after the victory over the Citizens, Tuchel remarked: “I think I have a new contract already.

“My manager said something to me about it – but I don’t know for sure. It was a special moment to meet the owner for the first time on the pitch.

“It was the best time for that – or maybe the worst because it can only get worse after this.”
