Shortly after the full time whistle at Stamford Bridge, former 'Blue' Eden Hazard went to congratulate his former team mates and the posterior images have incensed many Real Madrid supporters.
Images beamed around the world show the Belgian joking and laughing with Chelsea players moments after his own side suffered a semi-final exit from European football's most prestigious competition. Late night football chat show 'El Chiringuito' opened their programme on Wednesday night focusing on the Hazard incident with host Josep Pedrerol's opening lines to his 'editorial' being: "Real Madrid are out of Europe as Hazard finds time to laugh and joke. Two years of taking the piss out of Real Madrid fans... two years of being overweight... just another Gareth Bale".
Hazard later apologised on Instagram.
