Hard-tackling Chelsea defender, John Terry could knock you out if you mess with the 36-year old football legend.

Persistently now relegated to the bench at Chelsea, Terry seems to be developing his other skill (boxing) with some picture posted on his instagram page.

The club legend watched on from the bench as Victor Moses and the other Chelsea players beat West Ham on Monday night, but he was up early the following morning for a boxing session at home.

Stepping out into his garden, Terry started his Tuesday by donning the gloves for some pad work with trainer Bradley Simmonds.

Posting a video to Instagram, the 36-year-old practised some jabs, crosses and uppercuts in the short clip.

Terry has played just 10 times for the Blues this season - five in the Premier League - but has previously admitted that if the team are winning, he is happy to sit out.
