Roma shocked Barcelona with a stunning 3-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday night in their Champions League quarter-final second leg.

After losing the first leg at the Camp Nou 4-1, that result meant the Serie A club progressed to the semi-finals on away goals.

Greek defender Kostas Manolas grabbed the hosts' decisive goal with his header from a corner in the 82nd minute to send the home support into bedlam.

After the game, celebrations continued long into the night – and club president James Pallotta took a dip in the Piazza de Popolo fountain while being mobbed by a swathe of joyous supporters.

Roma's unbelievable win sparked wild celebrations in the dressing room too, as you might expect from a side reaching their second ever Champions League semi-final against the odds...

Even the press box went bonkers...

A glorious night indeed for all those attached to Roma. The semi-final draw takes place at UEFA's Nyon headquarters at 12pm GMT on Friday.
