Xavi pays tribute to a young cancer sufferer following his goal from the penalty spot in Barcelona's 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain.

Barcelona star Xavi paid tribute to a young leukaemia sufferer after scoring in last night's Champions League quarter-final draw with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spain international netted from the penalty spot in his side's 2-2 draw with the Ligue 1 outfit in the first-leg clash in Paris.

After finding the back of the net, Xavi patted his head in tribute to 10-year-old Miquel, who received a surprise visit from the player ahead of the game, according to Barcelona's official website.

The 33-year-old promised to carry out the goal celebration to the youngster, whom he visited after watching a documentary on World Cancer Day.
