Barcelona have paid homage to The Rolling Stones as the team sported a kit inspired by the band for their El Clasico match against Real Madrid.

The Catalonian side took to the pitch wearing special shirts featuring the iconic logo of the legendary rock group – the “hot lips”.

The special shirts were also on sale.

Band members Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood were both at the game as the hosts vied to hurdle their opponents in the Spanish league.

Fellow band member Keith Richards did not appear to be at the match.

Stones’ drummer Charlie Watts died in August 2021 at the age of 80.

Barcelona also honoured the British band ahead of kick-off by displaying a mosaic of burgundy and blue with a huge Rolling Stones logo.

Their tribute comes in the same week the group’s new album Hackney Diamonds claimed top spot in the UK charts -drawing them level with The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen and Robbie Williams for the record for most number one studio albums.
