The best Chris Hoy jokes after the British Olympic cyclist was once again confused with Premier League referee Chris Foy by Chelsea fans left annoyed as Willian, Ramires and Mourinho were all sent off during the one-nil defeat away at Aston Villa.

As is now tradition when the similarly named official angers a section of the football community, much of the frustration harboured by supporters is vented in the direction of Sir Chris Hoy MBE.

@mrdanwalker they're coming thick and fast! With an emphasis on the 'thick'.

In equal measure to the abuse though, we can also delight in the corresponding Chris Hoy jokes after the cyclist was mistaken for ref Chris Foy:

His name is Chris Foy, but all I hear is Chris Hoy #ASTCHE

Tin hat for Sir Chris Hoy.

— Jerry Thomas (@lushattic) March 15, 2014

Attention Chelsea idiots. @chrishoy is a national treasure not the referee that hates you (although he may not like you very much)

— Mark Davis (@Judethecat) March 15, 2014

If you see this, @chrishoy, it's probably best if you ignore the Twitter for tonight…

— Mirror Football (@MirrorFootball) March 15, 2014

Anyone know if that Chris Hoy is on here?

— Russ Smith (@russy6701) March 15, 2014

A gentle reminder to the green ink brigade that Chris Hoy is not a complete disgrace and totally unfit to referee.

— David Ayling (@Dkayling) March 15, 2014

@mrdanwalker @chrishoy a bad day for the nearly Chris Foy men of this world

— Chris Moy (@cmoy89) March 15, 2014

For any Chelsea fans wanting to give Chris Foy some shit he's on Twitter as Chris Hoy ;)

— The Malcontent (@TheMal_Content) March 15, 2014

I wonder if Chris Hoy receives more tweets from people thinking he's Chris Foy or from people making jokes about people who think he's Foy?

— Rexy Hugill (@RexyHugill) March 15, 2014

I can see @chrishoy at the Velodrome. He did not send Mourinho off tonight.

— Peter (@oysterman55) March 15, 2014

@adamsa101 @chrishoy Chris Roy is getting a mouthful too.

"Chris Foy" Is not Sir Chris Hoy. Or are you as blind as a Ref?

— Rafik (@raf234) March 15, 2014

@ChrisHoy yes, you had a decent 2012, but that doesn't excuse your awful performance today!

— Branislav The Blue (@IvanTheBlue_) March 15, 2014

@mrdanwalker @chrishoy I know refs have high opinions of themselves, but to claim you're a multi-time Olympic Gold Medalist too? #FoyNotHoy

— Steve Marshall (@BravestarrMarsh) March 15, 2014

@chrishoy I wouldn't go cycling near stamford bridge if I were you !! #avfc #cfc

— derek barnes (@thedelbarnes) March 15, 2014

@mrdanwalker @chrishoy makes you wonder whether Chris Foy has ever been congratulated for winning Olympic golds

— Anthony Kyriacou (@jessemma47) March 15, 2014

— Seb Green (@SebGreen92) March 16, 2014

Tv idea? Football ref Chris Foy swaps jobs with Olympic cyclist Chris Hoy for a week. It would be awful
