Gallery: FC Barcelona Lift LaLiga Trophy, Andres Iniesta Bids Farewell

FC Barcelona officially celebrated with the LaLiga trophy on Sunday night in front of a packed Camp Nou, but the occasion was overshadowed by Andres Iniesta's tearful goodbye.

The midfielder played his last game for the Catalan giants on Sunday night, their 1-0 win over Real Sociedad, following 22 years at the club.

While the actual match was a superb one, fans at the Camp Nou were there to enjoy the 34-year-old one last time. The crowd sang his name from the first moment until the last, and got on their feet to applaud him as he left the field with eight minutes remaining.

Iniesta and his teammates were handed the league trophy to celebrate in front of their home crowd following the clash, but those festivities were unsurprisingly eclipsed by their captain's farewell.

The Spaniard was handed a microphone to speak to the roughly 90 000 people in the stadium, a speech that had himself, his colleagues and many supporters bawling their eyes out.

The Barca God. The only player in Barca who is better than Messi.
