CHELSEA forward Timo Werner has been pranked by teammates Mason Mount and Jorginho in a hilarious video released by the Premier League club.
The 25-year-old German was made to think he was taking part in a promotional ad for the Blues’ sponsors Yokohama.

And the Chelsea pair took full advantage of the prank by making Werner do a host of funny skits.
He performed car noises, put on a hilarious racing outfit, hugged a tyre and drove around in a mini go-kart.
The end of the video then saw Mount and Jorginho reveal themselves to Werner, much to the German’s disbelief.
Having found out it was a prank, he said: “I can’t believe that I would do something for real. Some stupid things like [making a car noise].”
Mount then comforted his teammate by saying: “You’re a good sport.”

Werner has struggled to find the back of the net since arriving at Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020.
He has scored 14 goals in 60 games for the club, with his record for the current season standing at two in eight matches.
But the German did hit the back of the net for the Blues at the weekend as Chelsea battled past Southampton to claim a 3-1 victory.
Thomas Tuchel’s side sit top of the Premier League table heading into the second international break.
However, they did suffer a bump in the road last week when they followed up a loss to Manchester City with a defeat to Juventus in the Champions League.
The Blues return to action away at Brentford on Saturday, October 16.
