A church in Ghana's capital, Accra, has held a thanksgiving service for Chelsea following its recent success in the Premier League.

Long-time Chelsea fan Pastor Azigiza encouraged people to come wearing football tops of their favourite team.

Standing behind a Chelsea cake on a stage made to look like a football pitch he said: "Chelsea, by the grace of God, came first."

He told the BBC he wanted to use the power of football to talk about God.

Azigiza also led the congregation in a verse of the Chelsea anthem Blue is the Colour.

The pastor, who at one time was a radio DJ, was also teasing his immediate boss at the Living Streams International Church, Reverend Dr Ebenezer Markwei, who is an Arsenal fan.
