Hiddink could be fined for Chelsea celebration cigar

Departing Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink could be hit by a fine as part of his last game in charge at the Blues.

The Sunday Mirror says Hiddink could be hit with a fine after lighting a cigar in the Wembley dressing room following his side's FA Cup win.

Dutchman Hiddink was captured smoking on camera as he performed a bizarre victory dance with club owner Roman Abramovich.

But his antics breached the Government's strict ban on smoking in enclosed public and work places.

Anyone caught lighting up illegally can be fined £50 - reduced to £30 if it is paid within 15 days.

The FA, who own Wembley, could also be fined £2,500 for allowing Hiddink to spark the cigar.
