Chelsea’s Eden Hazard kicked a ball boy and was sent off as his team went out of the Capital One Cup in the semi-final after a second leg 0-0 draw at Swansea.

Chelsea were unable to overturn the two goal deficit they were left with after losing the first leg, at home, 0-2.
A major talking point in the coming days will be midfielder Eden Hazard’s sending off after eighty minutes.
In a shocking incident, the big-name Belgian international ended up kicking a ball boy in the ribs in what looked like a desperate attempt to get the ball back quickly after it went out of play.
The ball boy, presumably a Swansea City fan, appeared to milk the incident for all it was worth, but it was still a quite unsavoury cup moment and virtually ended Chelsea’s chance of finding a way back into the tie.
UPDATE: The ball boy is on Twitter! Meet Charlie Morgan and look what he tweeted before the match:
The king of all ball boys is back making his final appearance #needed #for #timewasting
