Here's the proof that John Terry possesses the brains to go with his brawn… or so we thought.
Chelsea's captain posted a proud picture of himself solving a Rubik's Cube on his Instagram account on Thursday, with the message: 'Say no more. Complete.'
But just hours later, Terry admitted he cheated the 'Cube'.
'Sorry these pics are the other way round,' the former Engaand captain revealed. 'It was so hard. Respect if anyone has completed one of these. '
Did you do the Blue side first John Terry solves his Rubik's Cube
The puzzle, a cultural sensation when it
was launched in 1980, is a fiendishly difficult test of memory and
logic – a bit like trying to recall the long list of Chelsea managers
under Roman Abramovich's reign.
To solve the Rubik's Cube, one must align a jumbled patchwork of squares so that all six faces contain a block of the same colour. We're guessing Blue is Terry's favourite side.
And seeing as Terry suggests he is clearly an expert at unravelling even the most daunting of enigmas, how about he next turns his attentions to the Chelsea manager's job
Quite who Abramovich should appoint as permanent boss at Stamford Bridge in the summer is anyone's guess now that Pep Guardiola has shunned Roman's roubles in favour of security and stability at Bayern Munich.

action for Chelsea following two months on the sidelines with a knee
Surely it won't be Rafa Benitez, who remains deeply unpopular with Chelsea fans. There are question marks over the pedigree of young pretenders Jurgen Klopp and Diego Simeone, especially after the disaster of Andre Villas-Boas's reign. Guus Hiddink has turned down the job before and may do so again. And with Jose Mourinho having fallen out with Abramovich long ago, is there anyone left
Now that's a real humdinger. Better try a crossword instead, John…
