Nathaniel Chalobah meets the man who saved the world eight times...on TV at least

Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah has posted a picture of himself on Instagram with Kiefer Sutherland AKA Jack Bauer.

For most of us, work does not involve single-handedly saving the world from terrorists on a regular basis.  But then most of us are not Jack Bauer - the man who inspired a million CTU phone-dial ringtones and who has done the hero thing eight times and counting.

Actor Kiefer Sutherland has recently been in London filming the new series of TV show 24 in which Bauer is the main character.  And now it seems he is not averse to selfies (I hate that word) or at least joining in with someone else's.

Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah has posted a picture on his Instagram account of the two men together, with the following message:

'Yes this really is happening.  The man himself Jack Bauer.'

Chalobah is currently on loan at Championship side Middlesbrough, where he has become a vital part of their team having spent the first half of the season at Nottingham Forest.

But you sense football was not on his mind as he bumped into the man who may just be least in the script.
