Thousands of fans who could not get a ticket for the big match still travelled to Porto to soak up the atmosphere and the sunshine in the city’s pubs and bars.

Meanwhile, back in London, thousands of Blues fans piled into pubs across the city to watch their side lift the trophy.

Once the win was confirmed, fans flooded into the streets around the club’s Stamford Bridge stadium, with supporters pictured hugging and embracing each other in the street.

It was a double whammy for west London football fans on Saturday as Brentford secured promotion to the top flight for the first time in 74 years.
