London:

Tens of thousands of Chelsea fans lined the streets of west London on Sunday to see the club's first Champions League-winning side parade the trophy.

The Blues went straight to their Stamford Bridge ground from the airport after flying back from Munich, where they beat Bayern Munich in a penalty shootout the previous evening.

The new kings of Europe paraded the cup from an open-top bus along the King's Road.

But amid the celebrations there's lingering uncertainty about the team's future.

Interim manager Roberto Di Matteo, who has delivered the European Cup and FA Cup in barely two months at the helm, has received no public assurances about his future.

And striker Didier Drogba, who scored the decisive penalty kick, is yet to extend his contract beyond next month.
