Francesco Totti pulled on the Roma shirt for the final time today and was, unsurprisingly, overcome with emotion as he waved goodbye to the Stadio Olimpico crowd.

After the game, cameras were fixed on Totti in his final farewell and much like many of his teammates, and fans, he struggled to hold back the tears.

Watch Totti tearing up post-match here:

Totti entered the fray in the second half with the game poised at 1-1, following a third minute opener from Pietro Pellegri, the youngest ever goalscorer in Serie A history, and a reply from Edin Dzeko in the first half,.

'Il Capitano' was handed the captain's armband by fellow one-club man Daniele De Rossi as he came onto the Stadio Olimpico pitch for the final time. As expected, every touch from the Roma legend was wildly cheered by those in attendance.

Roma would then eventually get over the line and secure Champions League football in an action-packed 3-2 win at the Stadio Olimpico.

Here are some of the highlights of Totti's farewell, courtesy of social media:
