Barcelona players sang Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" on the pitch of Bilbao’s San Mames Stadium after they retained their Women's Champions League 2-0 victory over Lyon on Saturday, 25 May.

Second-half strikes by Ballon d’Or winners Aitana Bonmati and Alexia Putellas secured Barca's title defence.

It was the first time Barcelona, with a line-up that included Keira Walsh and Lucy Bronze, had beaten the French champions in five times of asking.

A record-breaking crowd of 50,827 were in attendance for the Women’s Champions League final.
