Buffon joined Juventus from Parma in 2001 and has been the first choice goalie making 636 appearances as Juventus defeated relegated Hellas Verona 2-1 to be crowned champions of the Italian Serie A for a seventh consecutive time.

The 40-year-old keeper was substituted just after the hour, and was in tears as he embraced his team-mates while the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

He did a lap of honour while the match continued in Turin, accepting gifts and congratulations from fans.

Before kick-off, the Italian was greeted onto the pitch with a banner bearing his face. He then mingled with fans, accepting congratulations and gifts from the Curva Sud.

His team-mates wore the hashtag #un1co on their sleeves, pointing to the social media tributes that have flowed since he confirmed the end of his Juventus career on Thursday.
