Is this possible as an administrator? As a teacher, remove the chat after the lesson?

How can I delete a message that is too large?
I pasted an exel line that was much too long into the text field, but now I can't delete it, not even after shutting down and restarting Teams

It is a bad thing that users cannot delete a complete chat . Chat is getting really long like this. And who can see the chat ? Administrator? I think this is a privacy issue. You do not want chats to be saved.
