Fernando Torres was in tears as he officially said goodbye to Atletico Madrid following the culmination of the La Liga season.
Club legend Torres brought down the curtain on his Rojiblancos career with a double against Eibar.
Torres came through the ranks at Atleti in 2001, leaving the club for Liverpool in 2007 before returning to the Vicente Calderon in 2015.
And, after captaining the side and netting his 128th and 129th goals respectively on his final appearance in the 2-2 draw, Torres received a guard of honour from his team-mates and coaching staff at the culmination of Sunday’s clash at the Wanda Metropolitano.
An official farewell followed, with a highlight video of the strikers’ best moments for Atleti preceding speeches from numerous club dignitaries, and the presentation of a commemorative shirt and shield celebrating the Spaniard’s 404 appearances for the club.
