Chelsea players celebrated their Champions League triumph in an open top bus parade through West London.
And it was Drogba's cool penalty in the shoot-out which clinched Chelsea their historic triumph.
"We've been working hard for this," the Ivory Coast striker told Sky Sports News.
"I've been working eight years but some of the other boys have been working longer than this, and some are a bit more lucky - they arrived in their first year and they win it.
"It's fantastic, fantastic. Football is amazing.
"It's fantastic to come back home and have this kind of reception."
