Ramires joined our official betting partner 188BET for a Twitter-based Q&A on Thursday afternoon, spending an hour responding to fans' online questions.

The midfielder spent time responding to queries that had flooded into @188BET using the #askRamires hashtag, revealing some of his preferences and views on the game.

For example, the 24-year-old admitted to wearing the same pair of boots on a winning run, and that Michael Essien and David Luiz are probably the best dancers at the club.

The former Benfica man considers his brother to be his biggest influence, and that by sucking his thumb and kissing his wedding ring, he dedicates each of his goals to his wife and son.

There were also some unusual lines of questioning, with Ramires forced to explain he is still wearing his braces because the dentists keep changing their mind, and that he will not believe in the Loch Ness Monster until he sees it!

Ramires also picked out his two favourite questioners, with those selected winning tickets VIP tickets to Stamford Bridge - @beccaluiz (who asked about his pre-match rituals) and @danrose9 (who asked about the prospect of playing at Wembley).
