Robert Lewandowski was officially presented as a Barcelona player on Friday afternoon.
The Polish striker signed for Barca in a £42.5m last month.
57,300 Barca fans flocked to Camp Nou to watch his presentation, per Mundo Deportivo.
Lewandowski was given his number nine shirt and greeted fans.
He also did a few skills to entertain the Barca fans – and he well and truly put on a show.
Performing skills in front of an adoring crowd at your presentation isn’t the easiest of tasks.
Just ask Ousmane Dembele. Considered a very skilful player, the Frenchman went viral after messing up his tricks in his 2017 presentation.
But Lewandowski did not feel the pressure at all. He well and truly put on a show as he produced some stunning skills.

Stunning. Barcelona have dubbed him ‘Robert Lewandinho’ following his presentation.
That is, of course, in reference to Ronaldinho, who also produced some stunning skills during his presentation 19 years ago.
Ronaldinho went on to establish himself as one of the best players in Barcelona history.
Fans of the club will be hoping that the Polish legend, now 33, will be able to have a similar impact.
Lewandowski also spoke to the media at the presentation where he announced his excitement for the club’s future.
He said, per Marca: “I know these are not the best times for the club, but when I spoke with Joan and saw the project, the direction they want to take, it was the first step.
“I know the future will be bright. This team has a lot of potential. Everything is going well. in training. We have to show from the beginning of the season that we’re on the right track.
“It’s not easy and you have to be prepared for everything. With this project, many different things can happen this season.”
He added: “It’s a challenge for me. Show my best skills on the pitch in the first games of the season and be able to push the rest of the players to be better thanks to my experience.
“I don’t just think about myself, but about the team’s performance as a whole. If I can help with my experience, not only with the game, but with my words… I’ve seen a lot of things in my life in football. If I can use that and help, I will.”
