Technically, once challenged, a person has 24 hours to respond. They're more just like guidelines anyway.
Ashley Cole and his AS Roma chums challenged* John Terry in the Ice Bucket Challenge on Friday. Ex-Aston Villa man Stiliyan Petrov followed suit as well earlier on Monday. And after our 3-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor, John Terry duly obliged.
* no word yet from Didier Drogba
Of course taking ice baths is something that most professional footballers are quite used to, but as Terry and his rock-hard lower abs demonstrate, it still takes a bit of chutzpah to voluntary submit yourself to a quick deluge of the icy stuff.
But the best part is what Terry's saying.

Did you catch that third name? That's some master level trolling from the Captain. The bucket's in your court, Wet Interim.
