After 6195 days since he opened his account for the club in a Segunda second division game back in Albacete. Fernando Torres signed off with two trademarks 'El Nino' goals making his 128th goal for Atletico in all competitions to bid the club a farewell.

Torres started his career with Atlético Madrid, progressing through their youth system to the first-team squad. 

He won his  first ever trophy with Atlético  when he came on as a late substitute in the 3-0 Europa League triumph over Marseille in Lyon, and will be remembered as the clubs prodigal son when he left for Liverpool then Chelsea and Milan  before finally returning home to Atlético Madrid

Joined by his children, Torres led his side out to a guard of honor and a giant choreography by home fans that read: "From Kid to Legend." He received a spectacular reception as he made his way onto the field for the final time in an Atleti shirt.

El Nino left with a parting gift, by bagging a first half equaliser before latching onto Diego Costa's through ball to put Diego Simeone's side ahead.
He marked his first celebration by kissing the shirt in the corner as his team-mates rushed over to celebrate with the prodigal son.
For the second he leaped into the crowd who hugged him and refused to let him out of their grasp.
At the full-time whistle he was forced to fight back the tears as he received a special framed commemorative shirt.

Torres is adored by the club having started his career with Atleti and played over 400 times.
