John Terry has Jamie Redknapp and Rory McIlroy in hysterics as he reprises THAT infamous full-kit look from 2012 Champions League final to take part in trophy challenge with golf ace for new Sky show

  • Jamie Redknapp and his dad Harry are hosting a new entertainment show on Sky
  • Called Redknapp’s Home Fixture, they’ll present alongside comedian Tom Davis
  • One of the first guests on the show will be former Chelsea captain John Terry
  • The Aston Villa coach donned full kit for his cameo, even down to the shinpads 

After years of being mercilessly ribbed for collecting the Champions League trophy in full kit in 2012, John Terry has proved he is able to see the funny side.

The former defender was suspended for the final in Germany against Bayern Munich in 2012, but put on his full strip to climb the stairs and receive his medal after Roberto Di Matteo’s men won on penalties eight years ago.

Terry was roundly mocked for his actions and plenty of skits through the years have poked fun at the ex-England international for it.

Appearing in a trophy challenge from home against golf ace Rory McIlroy, Terry lined up his array of silverware, including a replics of the 2012 trophy, with the idea of chipping golf balls into each of them. 

Coming from off camera, the Aston Villa assistant appears into shot wearing not just his Chelsea shirt from 2012, but the full kit, right down to the shinpads, as Terry himself points out.
