Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink could be hit with Wembley smoking fine

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink could be hit with a fine after lighting a cigar in the Wembley dressing room following his side's FA Cup win.

Dutchman Hiddink was captured smoking on camera as heperformed a bizarre victory dance with club owner Roman Abramovich.

But his antics breached the Government's strict ban onsmoking in enclosed public and work places.

Anyone caught lighting up illegally can be fined £50 -reduced to £30 if it is paid within 15 days.

The FA, who own Wembley, could also be fined £2,500 for allowing Hiddink to spark the cigar.

Brent Council's health and safety team are expected todiscuss whether to take any action against Hiddink and the FA today (Mon).

Hiddink and Abramovich let their hair down in the dressingroom after Chelsea's 2-1 victoryover Everton.

Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard scored for Chelseaafter Louis Saha had put Everton ahead in a record-breaking 25 seconds.

Billionaire Abramovich recorded the jubilant scenes on hismobile phone as Chelsea's playersjoined in.

Hiddink, whose tenure as manager ended after the game, said:"There was South American, eastern European and African dancing going on.

"All the players and staff were involved. My whole bodywas moving in perfect time to an African dance. At least that's what I toldmyself."

The smoking ban was introduced in Englandon July 1, 2007 aftersimilar bans were implemented in Wales,Scotland and Ireland.

A month later The Rolling Stones angered anti-smoking groupsby lighting up during their gig at the O2 arena.

Keith Richards and Ronnie Woods took part in the on-stagerebellion to the delight of fans.

The group and venue owners escaped a fine after GreenwichCouncil said it was "satisfied" the incident was a one-off.

high & fine quality cigars come at a premium cost, which is why it's a great way to celebrate even if your not a heavy smoker of tobacco or tetrahydrocannabinol.

so i feel the law should be changed for Chelsea changing rooms and legendary managers :rolleyes:
