Chelsea's Pedro becomes first man to win five of world football's top trophies

While Chelsea's Pedro might not be mentioned up there with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player of the generation, he now holds an accolade no one has ever held before.

With Chelsea's thumping 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final on Wednesday, Pedro has become the first man to win arguably the five top trophies in world football.

Pedro has now won the Champions League, Premier League, Europa League, World Cup, and the European Championship, a feat never achieved in history.
