Twitter has paid its own tribute to Chelsea boss Antonio Conte by making him the first manager to get his own emoji on the social media channel.

The Italian has become renowned for his animated touchline performances this season and has quickly become a fans’ favourite at Stamford Bridge after comfortably leading the team to the Premier League title following a disappointing 2015/16 campaign, while he could still also lift the FA Cup.
Now, if you use ‘#ChelseaChampions’ on Twitter an emoji of a man wearing a suit appears to commemorate a successful first season in England for Conte.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the news via the popular social media channel, and they believe that former Blues boss and current Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will not be impressed that Conte is the first to get his own emoji.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
