Didier Drogba proved that class is permanent after netting a hat-trick and treating fans to his iconic celebration during a charity match between Marseille Legends and UNICEF.

The Chelsea legend was part of a Marseille side that took on a UNICEF team managed by Arsene Wenger at the Orange Velodrome, and Drogba haunted the former Arsenal boss once more for old time's sake.

Drogba starred along the likes of Robert Pires and Samir Nasri, and the Ivorian scored a hat-trick to give his side the victory, as Marseille's side beat UNICEF 7-4.

The iconic Premier League striker celebrated in trademark fashion, a sight that Chelsea fans will love to see.

Drogba celebrated his second goal in style as he casted Chelsea fans' minds back to 2012, as he emulated the celebration that saw him head the Blues level against Bayern Munich with just three minutes to go in the Champions League final.

After making it 1-1, the game then went all the way to penalties and Drogba was the hero once more, scoring the winning spot kick to earn Chelsea their first ever Champions League crown – which has since been added to following the success against Manchester City last season.

Is Didier Drogba Chelsea's best ever striker? Comment below

Drogba only spent one season at Marseille, but is loved by the French fans for his rampant 2003/04 season which saw him score 32 goals in 55 games across all competitions before heading to Chelsea.

The Ivorian then went on to establish himself as one of the greatest strikers of all time, winning four Premier League's and four FA Cups over two spells at Stamford Bridge, with the famous Champions League success the icing on the cake.

Drogba is now focusing on making a difference with his charity work, and the UNDP Goodwill Ambassador continues to help those in need after being named in Time Magazine's list of the world's most influential people back in 2010.
