Here we have Cesc posing with his third trophy in the space of about a hour’s worth of football for Barcelona (it’s now 12 for Pep), alongside Andres Iniesta – who, as you may be able to see, seems to have temporarily misplaced his underwear…

Barca beat Porto 2-0 in the UEFA Super Cup last night, and…hang on a moment…are those Carles Puyol’s Champions League draw glad rags I see hanging in the background?

Seems like Cescy baby has got himself into a spot of hot water for traipsing around the pitch after the game draped in a ‘Catalan Independence’ flag…

The beady-eyed AS picked up on the flag, outing it as some kind of political statement, which Fabregas duly denounced as utter cobblers via his Twitter account:

“My colleagues have told me that someone is offended by a flag on my back. Sorry, I thought it was a Catalan flag… Sorry again offended people.”

So there.
