Hitching up his trousers, a surprise guest at Kingsmeadow – ex-Liverpool gaffer Gerard Houllier. He managed the Olympique Lyonnais men’s team from 2005-7, writes Jane Grove.

He pitched up (alongside Talk Sport’s Moose, above) at the Chelsea Women v Lyon Women’s Champions League semi, and (below) joined jubilant French fans at the end in celebrating their narrow victory.

The former manager, who had to leave Aston Villa in 2011 because of heart issues, was making his first visit to the home of Chelsea Women.
