Andres Iniesta has played his final game for Barcelona and it was pretty emotional stuff at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

The midfielder was replaced by Paco Alcacer in the final 10 minutes to huge applause and with tears in his eyes.

Double celebrations followed the full-time whistle as Iniesta lifted the Liga trophy and was then thrown in the air by his team-mates.

And after it had all ended and everybody had gone home, Iniesta wandered back onto the pitch to have a little time to himself.

Some reports have claimed he was out on the pitch until 1am in the morning before finally leaving the stadium.

He’s probably like the rest of us and can’t quite believe it’s all over. What an absolute legend.
