Limping Mikel receives medal
Chelsea midfield pearl, Nigeriaâ€™s John Obi Mikel, joined his team mates to receive his winnersâ€™ medal after yesterdayâ€™s 8-0 drubbing of Wigan Athletic in the last match of the 2010 English Premier League.
The victory ensured the North London club won the League crown for the first time since the exit ofÂ Portuguese Legend coach, Jose Mourinho, three seasons back.
