Chelsea and England star John Terry has revealed he is learning how to play the piano.

The footballer has been injured recently, meaning he has had some spare time to get going with a few lessons, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Terry explained he is far from the only musical member of the squad at Stamford Bridge, with other members of the Chelsea team also playing instruments.

He said he has even joined a band set up by Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda, although he is not yet proficient enough on the piano to play the instrument with the group.

"Didier's started playing the guitar and Flo plays the drums too. They keep talking about starting a band and they've chucked me in as lead singer, a bit of Mr Bojangles," Terry explained.

Another footballer who plays a musical instrument is Sunderland star Andy Reid.

Earlier this year, he appealed for the return of the two Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster electric guitars he owns after they were stolen from a friend's recording studio.

Reid said the instruments meant a lot to him and he would love to have them back in his possession.
