Diego Costa responded to a  £2 coin being thrown in his direction during Chelsea's 2-0 Capital One Cup final win over Tottenham on Sunday by picking it up and then slipping it inside his shorts for future use.

The Brazil-born Spain international is not a popular player among opposition fans due to his bustling style up front. He only recently returned from a three-match ban for stamping on Liverpool's Emre Can.

Instead of confronting the fans or getting riled, Costa tucked the coin into his shorts -  it's enough to buy a Diego Costa air freshener from Chelsea's official club shop.

The 26-year-old played a key role in Chelsea's second goal, his shot inside the area deflecting off Kyle Walker to give the Blues a 2-0 lead in the 56th-minute.
