“Following the goal, I was so happy, but I was sort of in shock. I don’t remember anything immediately after, but when it sank in, I realised I’d scored the best goal of my life,” said South America’s most prolific Premier League goalscorer on the most famous goal of all – for Man City against QPR in 2012.

“Normally, when I was young, when I scored a goal, I always took my shirt off and waved it around my head. So, when I scored, it was just natural and I ran towards the corner before my team-mates jumped on me and they were all saying, ‘I love you, I love you!’.

“I had to tell them, ‘leave me alone’, because I was in shock at that moment, but the celebration was still good!”
