In what is set to be his last game as a professional footballer, social media has paid tribute to Spain’s legendary striker, Fernando Torres.
Torres was a feared yet inconsistent striker who enjoyed a remarkable career that saw him turn out for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea and a short stint in Japan before deciding to hang up his boots.
The 35-year-old also represented his native Spain with aplomb, having helped them clinch both the Euro 2008 and the 2010 Fifa World Cup as part of the country’s golden generation.
Twitter was filled with special tributes to the man affectionately known as ‘El Nino’.
