Costa Flag - Chelsea

Poor Diego Costa, he just can't help that looks stupidly old, can he?

Your birthday is meant to be a pretty relaxed day and everyone is usually uncharacteristically nice to you, so you can imagine how poor Diego Costa is feeling right now.

The Chelsea forward and professional wind up merchant is celebrating his 27th birthday, however the internet is having a really tough time accepting that he is only 27... and who can blame them!?

There are a few footballers who don't really look their age, from Celtic's Leigh Griffiths to Newcastle's Chancel Mbemba, but Costa seems to just blow them out the water for not looking his age at all. You'd have thought someone would have bought him a decent moisturiser or told to smile more often, but nope!

So with the Chelsea frontman celebrating his 27th birthday, Twitter went all out to mock probably the most disliked (though we love him) footballer in the country at the moment. 

Here are some of the best tweets having a dig at the Chelsea man's age:
