The music world has been reacting to the success of the London club following European triumph against Bayern Munich.
One Direction and Olly Murs have been leading the congratulatory messages to Chelsea following their Champions League victory against Bayern Munich in Germany last night (19th May).
'One Thing' singer Niall Horan took to his Twitter account shortly after the result to praise the London team and noted the "incredible" day for sport, after he watched Leinster lift the Heineken Cup in Twickenham earlier in the day.
"Incredible day for sport....thats why we love this shizzz.live for it.. congrats t chelsea.frank see ya soon bro..," read the singer's message.
Olly Murs – who will be supporting the boyband on their upcoming US tour – was also on his social networking account to post a message in honour of the team' success.
He wrote: "Gotta take my hat off to chelsea!! Everyone wrote them off in January!! Pulled it out of the bag!! Di-Matteo take a bow son!!"
Canadain rapper Drake, who was joined the Chelsea team for a kick-a-bout at Stamford Bridge earlier this year, made sure to note the fantastic achievement.
"Congratulations to Chelsea! Champions League!!! Incredible," he tweeted.
The final of the match was played at Bayern's home ground of the Allianz Arena in Germany and was eventually settled by a penalty shoot-out after the teams finished the 90 minutes and extra time at 1-1.
Meanwhile, One Direction are among the stars confirmed to perform a headline show at this September's iTunes Festival taking to the stage at London's Camden Roundhouse on 20th September.
