Michael Essien has stunned team-mates by kicking his 190,000 Lamborghini into touch and pedalling into work on a PUSH BIKE.

He regularly cycles the 10-mile round trip from his Surrey mansion to the Blues' Cobham training ground.

Shocked Premier League buddies have even nicknamed the 120,000-a-week Ghana midfielder "Lance", after Tour de France legend Lance Armstrong.

While the rest park up their Bentleys and Porsches, Michael, 27, cuts a cool figure in helmet and wraparound shades as he gets off his 1,300 two-wheeled racer.

The Stamford Bridge hero, injured for much of last season, told us: "I started coming in by bike because I found it interesting. I just thought it would be a nice journey - and it's good for my fitness."
