Whenever the first team win, it’s only normal for them to want to share their joy with their fans on social networks, often in the form of pictures taken in the dressing room or travelling home, with the hero of the game in the centre. The 3-2 defeat of Atlético at the Calderón to ensure passage into the semi-finals of the Spanish Cup was no exception. And the venue for Wednesday night’s photo was one of the gardens at Madrid airport.

Neymar Jr, scorer of two of the three goals, was the first to upload this image onto Instagram. He was followed by Messi, Suárez, Alves, Rafinha, Iniesta, Bartra and Alba on their own Twitter or Instagram accounts. A picture of happiness after a job well done.
