The 33-year-old missed Barca's semi-final win over Real Sociedad, but was declared fit enough to feature in Sunday night's final.

However, he was not at his best and failed to have a meaningful impact on the game, before being sent off for an apparent punch on an opponent in the 120th minute.

Barcelona lost 3-2 after extra time despite taking the lead twice, while Messi was given his marching orders for the first time in his club career.

After the match, the Argentine was completely down, according to Deportes Cuatro.

He apparently explained his action in the final minute as an act of desperation after being on the end of countless fouls and a poor performance from himself personally.

He also reportedly apologised to his teammates in the dressing room, while Athletic Bilbao went on to celebrate only their second major title since 1984.
