Chelsea star N’Golo Kante is known for his humility, and proved why after the Blues beat Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.
Kante played a starring role as Chelsea progressed to their first Champions League final since 2012.
And afterwards, while some left in Ferraris or Lamborghinis, he departed Stamford Bridge in a modest white Mini Cooper.
Chelsea fans had swarmed the streets outside the stadium and mobbed his car as he left, chanting his name and cheering.
The Frenchman was named Man of the Match after his brilliant performance, as he played a role in both goals as Thomas Tuchel’s side dumped Madrid out of Europe.

The Frenchman was constantly causing problems for the Madrid defence, and played a key role in both goals.
First, he drove at the opposition defence and played a one-two with Timo Werner before slotting the ball through for Kai Havertz.
