  • Antoine Griezmann scored twice in Atlético Madrid’s dominant Europa League final victory over Olympique Marseille.
  • Griezmann scored his first goal in the 21st minute of the game and performed a dance from the popular video game Fortnite.
  • Atlético won the game 3-0.

Antoine Griezmann performed a viral dance from cult video game Fortnite during Atlético Madrid’s annihilation of Olympique Marseille in the Europa League final.

Atlético crushed Marseille with a 3-0 score to claim the Europa League title at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in France on Wednesday.

Griezmann scored the game’s first goal in the 21st minute and, shortly after giving Atletico the lead, he ran toward the touchline and danced an “emote” from the smash hit video game Fortnite.

A jig features heavily in Griezmann’s “emote,” but the French forward also held his right hand on his forehead and positioned his finger and thumb into an “L” sign. In Fortnite language, this means “take the loss.”

Watch Griezmann’s dance below.

Griezmann scored a second goal in the 49th minute before Gabi finished the game with Atlético’s third goal in the 89th minute.

The Europa League success ensured Atlético won the trophy for the third time in its history, having also claimed the title in 2010 and 2012.
