·1 min read

Barcelona’s players celebrated their Women’s Champions League victory by interrupting their coach’s press conference with jubilant cheers.

The Spanish side were 4-0 winners over Emma Hayes’ Chelsea in a hotly anticipated final in Gothenburg.

It was the first time Lluis Cortes’ side had won the competition, which has been dominated by Lyon over recent years, and the size of the moment was not lost on the players.

They were seen and heard interrupting proceedings as Cortes attempted to speak to the world’s media, chanting and jumping around him with trophy in hand.

Cortes took the interruption in his stride, joining in the celebrations with his players.
