Precious little is known of secretive oligarch Roman Abramovich.

The Chelsea owner has never even given an interview since buying the club in 2003, so insights into his psyche are virtually non-existent.

But on Saturday, we saw a glimpse behind that billion-pound facade.

Abramovich bankrolled the signing of Didier Drogba this summer as the club's greatest ever striker returned to the club.

And, as Stamford Bridge came to its feet to acclaim the substitute, Abramovich got rather carried away too.

So much so in fact, that we learned even oligarchs suffer from sweat patches....

Chelsea went on to win the game 2-0 with new signing Diego Costa and Belgian star Eden Hazard on target.
