Chelsea captain earns plaudits from Barcelona

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has praised Chelsea skipper John Terry for his behaviour after Wednesday night's last minute semi-final defeat. Yet despite Terry's disappointment, he visited the Barcelona dressing room and shook hands with each member of their playing and coaching staff.

It was an act of sportsmanship for which the Barca team and staff applauded him out of the room.

"I want to thank John Terry for coming into the dressing room and congratulating us," said Guardiola.

"He's a true gentleman."
