Eric Abidal was thrilled to lift the Champions League trophy for Barcelona on Saturday.
The France defender was invited to hold the trophy aloft by captain Carles Puyol.
"At that time, there are no words. It seems that time stopped," Abidal said.
"It is an honour to have lifted the trophy - an image that will stay for life. That Puyol came to me and said I deserved it, it confirms that Barça is more than a club. What they did, it has never been seen."
