Il Gladiatore immortalised

Francesco Totti could not hold back the tears as he was inducted into Roma's hall of fame in an emotional ceremony on Tuesday night.  The Italy star, who played for Roma for his entire 25-year career, was presented to fans before Roma's Champions League defeat by Real Madrid. Roma immediately inducted Totti into their hall of fame when he retired, but delayed the public ceremony to honour him. The 42-year-old was visibly touched as fans chanted his name and held up banners. "It's a landmark day, so special," Totti said. "I'm a Roman, a Roma fan, I only played for one club, I was the captain... it's a privilege that is difficult to put into words. To stand here in front of the fans is always emotional for me. To be with them makes every day like the hall of fame for me. Like always we are united; we are all brothers, sisters - I truly love you all."
