The German coach was involved in a series of touchline spats with the equally as animated Conte throughout yesterday's action-packed 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
And after the full-time whistle, Tuchel was in good spirits. In fact, he jokingly sent a message to the Italian by flexing his bicep before speaking to the media. Check it out below.

If you happened to miss Sunday's game [commiserations, it was a classic] then let me bring you up to date.
Chelsea took the lead through new signing Kalidou Koulibaly before Pierre Hojbjerg equalised for Spurs from range.
Tuchel, meanwhile, was unhappy over a potential foul on Kai Havertz in the build up to Hojberg's goal. He clashed with Conte and both managers picked up yellow cards for their actions.

The drama didn't stop there. Chelsea took the lead again with just over 10 minutes remaining after Reece James converted past Hugo Lloris.
A delighted Tuchel proceeded to channel his inner Jose Mourinho with a run down the touchline.

Then, with minutes remaining, Spurs forward Harry Kane headed home from a corner to make it 2-2.
Moments later and Conte and Tuchel clashed again after a frosty handshake.
The German refused to let go of Conte’s hand and both men had to be separated by their coaching staff before being shown a red card by referee Anthony Taylor.

After the match, Tuchel spoke about the incidents. He told Sky Sports: “When you shake hands I thought we look into each other's eyes but we had a different opinion so it was emotional. He was happy when they equalised, and it got a bit heated but nothing big.
“It's emotional. You like it. We don't need comments now. It was heated up and heated up. Just look at it. It's the Premier League, it's the game. You love it, no? We love it. We are emotional coaches.”
Conte, meanwhile, posted a a message to Tuchel on Instagram. “Lucky I didn’t see you…making you trip over would have been well deserved…”
