Chelsea captain John Terry has fallen victim to a burglary at his £5m Surrey mansion while on a recent skiing holiday with his wife, according to The Sun.

Terry posted images of himself and other half Toni on Instagram while away enjoying a break, and it’s reported that friends are fearful that the criminals struck upon seeing the posts – knowing Terry’s house was free. The report claims his home was “ransacked” by the burglars who dodged security in order to enter the house.

A source said: “It’s a horrifying incident for any family to go through, and John and Toni have been very shaken by this. They’ve hired an extra security team who are now outside, in addition to the security company who patrol the estate. They’re taking no chances.”
