It may not be seen at Stamford Bridge any more because of a banning order, but Chelsea fans certainly love to bring out the celery when celebrating.

Banned from matches because of the rude lyrics and disruption it causes on the pitch, the much-loved tradition can still be seen when groups of Chelsea fans gather at away games and in Europe.

The victory parade around west London was no different and as thousands lined the streets, the vegetable was prominently on show.

One Chelsea player new to these shores probably didn't know too much about the tradition before he arrived - but he was clearly loving it on the open-top bus parade.

Diego Costa, who has been instrumental for Chelsea this season, scoring 20 goals in the Premier League this season, was in the thick of the action, giving as good as he got with the celery (via Chelsea's Twitter and Vine accounts)

Costa was clearly getting his eye in for hitting the target more next season.
