The vest that Andres Iniesta wore in tribute to a deceased player that he revealed after scoring Spain's winning goal in the World Cup final has gone on display at Espanyol's stadium.

Immediately after his extra-time goal in Spain's 1-0 win over the Netherlands last year, Iniesta removed his jersey to show a white cut-off shirt bearing the words: "Dani Jarque siempre con nosotros" (Dani Jarque always with us).

Jarque, Espanyol's captain, collapsed and died aged 26 on a preseason tour of Italy in August 2009.

Iniesta, who plays for Espanyol's city rival Barcelona, was praised throughout Spain for putting aside club rivalry to make the gesture.

Visitors can see the vest on matchdays and tours at Cornella-El Prat arena.
