Incredible scenes as Atletico Madrid stars are mobbed by fans after La Liga title win

Atletico Madrid‘s players were greeted with a heroes welcome as they boarded the team bus back to Madrid after clinching the La Liga title.

Diego Simeone‘s side held on to secure their first league title since 2013 as Luis Suarez’s late goal sealed a 2-1 win away at Real Valladolid.

The Atletico Madrid squad and Simeone partied on the pitch at full time with the majority of the team winning their first ever Spanish league title.

However, the scenes inside the Estadio Jose Zorrilla were matched by wild celebrations outside as the travelling Los Rojiblancos fans mobbed them in the car park.
