Stop the press!!!

Fernando Torres smiles, looks happy, even laughing at one point. I like this picture because of the look of sheer joy on the
face of the Chelsea striker.

This picture was taken during Chelsea's win in the semi
final of the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan

Torres scored at the start of the second half against
Monterrey and clearly looks happy about his form returning.

My latest picture of the week was taken during Chelsea's 6-1 victory over Nordsjaelland at Stamford Bridge on December 5.

The look on the face of Fernando Torres sums up the mood at Chelsea at the moment.

European Cup holders – yet on their way out in the first stage of this season's competition.

Torres ended his goal drought by scoring twice against Nordsjaelland last Wednesday.

But the Spaniard doesn't appear to be too enthralled by his efforts.

My image of the week is Jack Wilshere celebrating his first goal since making his comeback.

Arsenal midfielder Wilshere had been sidelined for 17 months with ankle and knee problems but was back among the goals in the 2-0 Champions League win over Montpellier.

The picture clearly tells the story as you can see the relief on Wilshere's face and the dejected defenders in the background.

This week's picture works for me, even though England lost the Test against Australia 14-20 at Twickenham on Saturday.

Manu Tuilagi looks determined to do the best he can to limit the points deficit: with at least five Australian players he still manages to stay on his feet.

Charlie Sharples scores for England: Picture of the week by Andy Hooper

Charlie Sharples scoring the first of his two tries in England's victory over Fiji is my favourite image of the week.

Sharples is inches away from grounding the ball and in my final edit I liked the determination on the players' faces. You can see both the Fijians and the England offence are intent on getting the ball.

The next frame shows the ball grounded but there is no movement in the picture as all the action had already happened.

I was positioned on the opposite corner flag but the 400mm telephoto lens enabled me to capture this image and get close to the action.

My image is from last week's pulsating Capital One Cup tie between Chelsea and Manchester United.

I captured this brilliant celebration from Eden Hazard after he scored a last minute equaliser to send the game into extra time.

Sitting on Manchester United attack, Chelsea were awarded a penalty in the dying moments. Fearing I would be at the wrong end, I ran down the side of the pitch and quickly positioned myself at the side for the penalty.

After Hazard scored, he ran and jumped into the air giving me this stunning image and, of course, feeling very happy that I'd sprinted down!

This is Robin Van Persie celebrating his goal against Chelsea on Sunday where Manchester United won 3-2 in an action packed thriller.

There were 58 photographers at the game, spread around the pitch and fortunately I was in the right position to catch Van Persie after he scored after 12 minutes, seen here running towards the Chelsea fans.

The expression on his face is one of intensity and passion.

Jimmy Bullard was always going to be up for a bit of larking around.

The interview was to take place in Cobham and as Jimmy is a keen fisherman we decided to look for a picturesque shot down by the river.

He spent his time looking for places to fish while I set my gear up. When the lights were turned on Jimmy jumped for the camera, kicking an imaginary ball.

It’s the expression on his face which makes this a good picture, as he appears to float above the river.

Ryder Cup 2012 Team Europe picture of the week by Graham Chadwick

This week I am in Chicago for what promises to be yet another Ryder Cup full of thrills, spills and edge-of-your-seat drama.

The European team, captained by Jose Maria Olazabal, were paired into fourballs for their first practice session on Tuesday but came together for a stunning group image with the prize they hope to retain against the United States come Sunday.

This picture works for me, because of the way this frame has picked up the flash off a fellow photographer.

Sometimes in this situation at a photo call, just by moving to the side, changing your angles and, of course, with a little bit of luck, you can produce an image that is very effective.

Dereck Chisora KO: My image of the week by Graham Chadwick

Graham Chadwick: My favourite image of the week… Chisora's KO by Haye summed up in a single frame

Every
Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Sportsmail's top snappers Andy Hooper,
Graham Chadwick and Kevin Quigley will be showcasing their favourite
image of the week.

This week's picture works for me because, finally, we have an outcome. After all the trash talking, all the tripod throwing, and that brawl during the press conference in Munich, we have a resolution.

Hopefully now that David Haye has beaten him, we won't have to see Dereck Chisora in the ring for a long time. This picture was taken from a balcony position and tells the story of the night in just one frame.
