Watch Video: Spain squad and Chelsea surprise a delighted Diego Costa with birthday cake

Footballers’ birthdays can occasionally prove problematic. Just ask Yaya Toure, who considered leaving Manchester City in 2014 after the club failed to make enough fuss to mark the Ivorian midfielder turning 31.

No such danger with Chelsea star Diego Costa, who was sitting down for dinner with his Spain teammates on his 28th birthday when a surprise cake was wheeled out to brighten up his international break.

The pantomime villain’s usually surly features transformed themselves into an elated grin when he saw the flamboyant sparkly candle, and he gave a brief speech of gratitude before resuming his place at the table.

But that wasn’t all. Slighty oddly, the squad seemingly had a whip around and decided to buy Costa, who earns a reported £185,000 a week, an LG gram ultra-thin laptop. And, judging from the striker’s delighted face, it’s just what he always wanted.

This all came after Chelsea released their own slightly weird touching birthday tribute to the former Atletico Madrid man on Friday.

It seems any possibility of a Yaya-esque crisis has, thankfully, been averted.
