Chelsea players returned to a swooning crowd of some 200,000 as they paraded triumphantly through West London. The photos are here, courtesy of the Daily Mirror.

At its busiest points, the newspaper said, the parade route went 20-deep with supporters wearing the familiar Chelsea blue.

Players, the owner, the coach who may not be the coach, plus supporters of all ages are in this comprehensive look at Sunday’s festive happening along Fulham Road and elsewhere around the (now, finally famed?) Stamford Bridge ground.
