It was another classic Lionel Messi goal but one with a special meaning as the Argentine forward revealed his tribute to the late Diego Maradona.

The Barcelona striker dribbled past two players and struck his shot into the far left corner to score a trademark goal against Osasuna at Camp Nou this afternoon.

After celebrating with his teammates for a moment the 33-year-old removed his jersey to reveal Maradona's number 10 Newell's Old Boys shirt underneath.

Maradona, who passed away aged 60 this week, played with the Argentine club between 1993-1994, and Messi pointed to the sky as he donned his compatriot's famous jersey after the goal.

Earlier goals from Martin Braithwaite, Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann ensured a 4-0 win for Barcelona as they jumped back up to 7th in the La Liga table.

Maradona scored 38 goals in 58 games during his two-year spell with Barcelona between 1982-1984.

Messi's tribute to his compatriot is just the latest in a series of gestures across football and wider sport to pay respect to one of the sport's greatest ever.

On Saturday, the All Blacks laid out a jersey with Maradona's name prior to doing the Haka against Argentina.

Meanwhile, all Premier League and Serie A games this weekend held a minute's applause in honour of the former Argentina captain and international manager.
