How Twitter reacted to Barcelona’s Champions League triumph
In the end, it was Barcelona that claimed a treble, as they eased to a 3-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League final to cap a momentous season for Luis Enrique and the Nou Camp club.
Naturally for such a huge sporting event, Twitter was ablaze throughout the encounter with sarcastic comments, vines and general musings.
Below is some of the best clippings from the evening:

Once the game got underway, Barca made a beautifully quick start – scoring inside the opening five minutes in a move that involved everyone:

Juve got back into it with an equalizer from Morata, whose exploits in the latter stages of the competition haven’t gone unnoticed:

Luis Suarez and Neymar both found the net to put the game beyond the Italians, however, leading the Spanish giants to celebrate a momentous win, wherever they were:
