What Marco Reus did after his final Bundesliga game for Borussia Dortmund shows his true class

Reus made an incredible gesture to the fans.

Marco Reus showed his true class with a gesture he made following his final home match for Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund legend Reus played his final home match for the club on Saturday, 12 years after joining from Borussia Monchengladbach.

The 34-year-old attacker marked the occasion with a stunning free-kick to help his side record a 4-0 win against Darmstadt on the final day of the Bundesliga season.

Reus has not been a regular starter for Edin Terzic's side this season, but with Champions League qualification already assured, he was named in the starting XI for his final match at the Westfalenstadion.

The Dortmund fans honoured their hero - who was given the captain's armband by usual skipper Emre Can - with a huge choreography depicting his shirt before the match, as well as a banner that read: "Your name stands for identification and loyalty - danke [thank you], Marco!"

When Reus was substituted in the 81st minute, his teammates gave him a guard of honour as he left the field.

After the full-time whistle, Reus made his way over to the Sudtribune - otherwise known as the yellow wall - and climbed up into the stand to lead the club's ultras in some chants.

The ultras then discovered that Reus had left them a nice surprise as a token of his gratitude.

The former Germany star paid for thousands of supporters to enjoy post-match beers in the bar behind the Sudtribune.

Photos on social media showed a note from Reus stuck to the bar that read: "Thank you for everything! The farewell beer is on me. Your Marco."

Over the course of 12 seasons at Dortmund, Reus made 428 appearances in all competitions, scoring 170 goals and providing 131 assists.

He could yet add to his tallies if he gets on the field when Dortmund take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final at Wembley on June 1.

The final match of Reus' first season with the club was also a Champions League final at Wembley, which Dortmund lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich.
