During a 16 year spell at Barcelona, he won almost everything there is to win in world football.

Throughout that time, the midfield magician was a consistent force in the middle of the park, playing alongside Xavi and Sergio Busquets for a decade.

And when we look back at the former Spanish international's career, we reminisce about his passing and dribbling ability, as well as his signature skill move; La Croqueta.

Although it may be one of the more simple skill moves, Iniesta manages to pull it off with such grace.

The way he deceived Chelsea's Gary Cahill, especially, was a joy to behold.

In the 82nd minute Iniesta proceeded to give the captain's armband to his teammate Lionel Messi. The midfielder sobbed as he was replaced for the final time.

Head in hands on the subs bench, his name was chanted around the stadium for several minutes.

He produced his trademark 'La Croqueta' skill while skippering his side to a Copa Del Rey and La Liga double, playing his final game in the 1-0 win over Real Sociedad

In what was an unsurprisingly emotional affair, Barcelona fans unveiled a wonderful 'Infinity Iniesta' mosaic prior to the game and the World Cup winner was given an incredible standing ovation when he left the pitch for the final time as a Barcelona player.

A true legend of the game.
