Spain hero Iniesta tribute to Dani Jarque

Spain hero Andres Iniesta paid an emotional tribute to a former team-mate - after winning the World Cup.

The Barcelona midfielder revealed a message on his T-shirt to his tragic pal Dani Jarque.

The Espanyol player died of a heart attack last August aged 26 and Iniesta's T-shirt says: Dani Jarque Always with us.

Iniesta, who played alongside him in the Spain Under-21 team and youth sides, said: "This was a spectacular occasion for me to pay homage to my beloved friend. The goal came from a pass from Dani."
