Ramires has appeased concerns over his health after missing Chelsea’s 1-0 title-clinching win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The Brazilian midfielder was set to start at Stamford Bridge but withdrew from the squad, before being admitted to hospital with a kidney problem.

“I was very sick yesterday minutes before the match because of a renal complication, but I’m well and home with my family,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Thank God it was nothing serious and I will be fully recovered in a few weeks. Thank you to all that sent me messages and were with me. I would like to thank the Chelsea’s medical team for the exceptional job.

“I was sad not to be part of the party on the pitch, but very pleased with the title, the only English title I had left to concur. Congratulations Chelsea!”
