Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has taken a stake in an Ivory Coast goldmine!

The Daily Mail says Galatasaray striker will take a 5 per cent stake in the mine, the west African country's communications minister Bruno Kone said on Friday.

No financial details were given of the deal, which is part of a transaction involving a Canadian company increasing its stake in the Ity gold mine, while state mining group Sodemi gives up part of its holding.
