Scoring the final goal against Osasuna at FC Barcelona’s home ground Camp Nou, Lionel Messi celebrated it by stripping off his jersey top and revealing a Newell’s Old Boys shirt in reference to former player Diego Maradona. Paying tribute to the Argentina great, Messi also blew a kiss with both hands to the sky as he looked upward.
After the match, Messi shared a collage of his picture alongside an older image of Maradona in the same shirt, who passed due to heart attack at the age of 60. With the world mourning the sudden death of Maradona, Messi’s tribute was a great moment in every way. Along with the photo, Messi also added the message ‘Farwell, Diego’ in Spanish.
