The Frenchman, 23, was driving home when he veered off the road on Blundel Lane near the Blues’ Cobham training base last Thursday.

Our exclusive pictures showed the extent of the damage to Bakayoko‘s vehicle – with the windscreen shattered and the roof caved in.

His brother Namory recently sparked fears that an incident could happen, claiming he is putting off driving in England.

He said: “Tiemoue told me he wasn’t allowing himself to drive because he thinks it’s too crazy driving on the left! But he’ll get round to it.”

But the Chelsea star seems fine now as he got behind the wheel of his Mercedes a week to the day after his collision.

Elsewhere, N’Golo Kante, David Luiz, Danny Drinkwater and boss Antonio Conte were seen leaving Cobham on Thursday.

The Blues left it late to keep up their 100 per cent record in the Champions League this season.

Having gone 1-0 down in the first half thanks to an Antoine Griezmann strike, Alvaro Morata got Chelsea back on level terms on the hour mark.

But it was substitute Michy Batshuayi who stole the show when he grabbed all three points with his 94th-minute strike.

On the evening, Costa was spotted hugging Conte’s brother Gianluca ahead of kick-off at the Vicente Calderon.

Costa – who is finally in training in 2017-18, after taking part in his second Atleti session – was also seen looking demoralised following the Blues’ last-gasp win.
