John Terry has been left furious that an Indian cigarette company has used a likeness of him as a health warning on their cartons.

It provoked an angry response from the veteran Aston Villa player, who posted on his Instagram feed: “Disgusting from this company Gold Flake using my image on their cigarettes. I hate smoking!!!”

Terry is currently plying his trade in the Championship with the Villans after spending 19 years at Chelsea, where he became an icon of the club, scooping a vast array of silverware, including the 2012 Champions League, five Premier League titles and five FA Cups.
