Latest update : 2015-02-10

The family of former Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba was as ecstatic as anyone watching the former star's teammates beat Ghana in a dramatic penalty shootout Sunday to claim their first Africa Cup of Nations title in 23 years.

The Chelsea star, who retired from international football last year, posted a video on Instagram of his brother watching as goalkeeper Boubacar Barry scored the winning penalty at the end of a marathon shootout that finished 9-8 to the Ivorians. The reaction is quite something.

This article has been corrected. It formerly stated that it was Didier Drogba in the video rather than his family.
