Chelsea boss Antonio Conte took reporters for a Christmas drink on Friday.

BBC reporter John Southall tells the tale of Conte inviting journalists who attended his press conference before the game against Bournemouth for drinks afterwards.

“A handful of journalists were invited for pre-Christmas drinks after his press conference, so we all adjourned to the local pub around the corner and he bought us a beer,” Southall said.

Chelsea enjoyed a comfortable win over Bournemouth yesterday.
