Now that Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has ended his protest against the club's new shirt sponsor, payday lender Wonga, it's time to unwrap his boots and get back to training.

Teammate Sammy Ameobi shared a photo of the "Sisse" boots via Instagram/Twitter, noting the awkwardness of the situation.
