(Images): Thiago Silva finally takes part in his first Chelsea training session

The day has arrived, new signing Thiago Silva has taken his first steps out onto the Cobham grounds and joined in his first Chelsea training session today.

The experienced Brazilian international was granted some time off to settle in his new place in London after arriving just over a week ago.

But the centre back has finally got to work with his new team mates and will hope to make himself available to face Liverpool on Sunday as a result.

He already looks well at home in his Chelsea gear!
