During his 18-year professional career John Terry has won almost every honour, played alongside and against the very best in world football and captained his country.
John Tery shows his memorabilia collection as a museum

Football fans can only dream about owning a memorabilia collection that's half as impressive as the one John Terry showed off on Instagram.
Terry appears to have been feeling a bit nostalgic Friday as the Chelsea captain uploaded a picture of his impressive collection of memorabilia and trophies.
Jerseys from some of the game's best players, such as Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry, Ronaldinho, and Paolo Maldini are just some of the kits Terry displays prominently in his museum-like gallery.
Shirts, trophies, caps and more are all perfectly laid out in one room in Terry's Oxshott home. If it were a museum, fans would be lining up to gain entry.
The list of stars' strips mounted behind the glass cabinet is impressive enough; it seems the 35-year-old is a fan of post-match shirt swapping.
Steven Gerrard, Gianluigi Buffon, Arjen Robben, Samuel Eto'o, Alan Shearer, Carles Puyol, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcel Desailly, Xavi, Paolo Maldini, Frank Lampard, Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry, Diego Maradona, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Paul Schioles and Ricardo Carvalho and Michael Owen's shirts are all visible in the picture.
Also present in the room are bottles of Man of the Match champagne, his 2007 FA Cup-winning strip, player of the month awards, medals and some of the 78 England caps he won, and the England shirts he has worn.
Terry is currently working to regain his fitness, and Guus Hiddink confirmed he will miss Saturday's game against Southampton with a hamstring injury.
'He will not be fit. He is still in treatment,' the Dutchman said. 'Every now and then he goes in the gym. He is doing exercises there and on the pitch but he is not fit.'
