Goodnight

Gabi, who assisted Atletico’s third goal in their 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the 2012 final, scored his first ever Europa League goal tonight. Not a bad time to break your duck.

Real Madrid have just tweeted to congratulate Atletico on winning today.

This is the first time in five years that Real haven't knocked Atletico out of Europe.

That's Fernando Torres' first major trophy for Atletico Madrid (all his previous club success had come with Chelsea).

It is a first ever major success for Antoine Griezmann, who is being strongly linked with Barcelona.

Funnily enough, it's Kevin Gameiro's fourth Europa League in five years. The Frenchman, who was on Atletico's bench today, won three in a row with Sevilla from 2014 to 2016.

A few of you are asking what happens to the Champions League spot for the Europa League winners - since Atletico have already qualified through La Liga.

Well the answer is the third-placed team from Ligue 1 (which could be Marseille if they can overtake Lyon on the final day) go straight into the group stages - instead of the qualifiers.

Nobody extra qualifies really.

Antoine Griezmann puts a baby - I presume his - in the Europa League trophy and poses for a photo with a woman - I presume his partner/the baby's mother.

Marseille have lost their last three European finals, without scoring a single goal - all in this tournament.

Since the beginning of the 2013-14 season, Spanish clubs have won eight of the nine Champions League and Europa League trophies.

The exception are Manchester United in last season's Europa League.

Real Madrid can make it nine out of 10 if they beat Liverpool in Kiev in 10 days' time.

They have won four out of five Champions Leagues in that time - Barcelona winning the other.

Sevilla won three Europa Leagues in a row before United beat Ajax last year.

Stu: Could we see two European trophies ending up in Madrid this season?

Tony: Not really a contest after 15 minutes

Now that's a nice touch. Gabi gets the trophy (and almost drops it) before handing it to Fernando Torres so they can lift it together.

Torres was Atletico's captain as a teenager before leaving for Liverpool.

Antoine Griezmann gives the Europa League trophy a kiss as he goes past. Fernando Torres is the final player to get his medal - this is his penultimate game for the club.

Here comes Diego Simeone - who is allowed on the pitch now that the game's over. He gets the first medal, German Burgos - who was the man on the touchline - gets the second. And now here are the players.

Dimitri Payet immediately takes his medal off as he walks away from the podium.

Atletico Madrid give Marseille's players a guard of honour as they go to get their runners-up medals. Some of the French team's players are still in tears.

It's time for the officials to get their medals - Bjorn Kuipers and the lads. As a linesman you're probably depending on there being a good referee from your country to get big games like this.

Atletico Madrid haven't been eliminated from Europe in a knockout round or lost in a final to anyone except Real Madrid since 2013.

Damian: As widely predicted, Atletico confirm that the Europa League could have been a fitting trophy for the end of Arsene Wenger's great career had they progressed

Colin: Watching the game in a hotel in Crete. Perfect scenery, perfect game. Simeone may not be everyone's cup of tea but he gets the job done

Marseille's players look distraught.

As well as losing a third Uefa Cup/Europa League final, they miss out on a chance to secure a Champions League place for next season.

They still have a chance but they need to better Lyon's result in Ligue 1's final day on Saturday.

Marseille 0-3 Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid
.

Only Sevilla (five) have won more Europa Leagues and/or Uefa Cups than Atletico Madrid - who are now joint with Liverpool, Juventus and Inter Milan on three.

I cannot think of a team in the world you have less chance of coming back from 1-0 down against.

Even Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester City, Liverpool, whoever might give you a chance.

But Diego Simeone's side are the masters. A perfect performance really to win.

We're into the final seconds now. Diego Costa lashes the ball into the crowd!

INJURY TIME

Marseille 0-3 Atletico Madrid

Two minutes added on as Marseille fans let off firecrackers. Careful now.

SUBSTITUTION

Marseille 0-3 Atletico Madrid

Atletico do bring on Fernando Torres, I don't want to be mean but they left it until a stage where they couldn't possibly lose. No hat-trick for Antoine Griezmann tonight as he's replaced.

Anon: Surely Madrid derby for UEFA Super Cup and Real will win it

GOAL - Marseille 0-3 Atletico Madrid

Gabi

The captain has sealed the win!

Antoine Griezmann plays a delicious ball through to Diego Costa, but he's too slow to speed away. He does hold it up however and finds Saul.

Saul doesn't even need a second to think, he immediately plays it first time to midfield partner Gabi and he smashes the ball past Steve Mandanda into the corner of the net.

SUBSTITUTION

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

It's time to PARTEY. And that's because Atletico are bringing on midfielder Thomas Partey for Angel Correa for the final minutes.

One more sub left - will it be Fernando Torres?

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Oh my. Clinton Njie has just taken the worst shot in the history of football. The ball lands to him near the penalty spot and he just sort of prods it with the outside of his foot and it flies towards the left wing. WOEFUL.

A chance to add a third for Atletico but Diego Costa's 20-yard shot hits the back of a defender.

Joe: Diego Simeone, stop faffing around and get Torres on please! Now!

Peter: One word to describe this Atletico team and their manager. INTENSITY

That little spell is over now and Atletico are in possession again near the corner flag.

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Good play by Clinton Njie and Florian Thauvin to find Bouna Sarr but his cross is poor.

This is so much better from Marseille and now Jordan Amavi has a go from 20 yards but his shot on the bounce is held by Jan Oblak.

Where was this rally earlier on?

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

The Marseille fans are making so much noise now. Has that given them renewed hope? Or are they just having a party?

HITS THE WOODWORK

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

It's almost game on, long after I've given up any hope of late drama. Marseille striker Kostas Mitroglou heads the ball past keeper Jan Oblak... but it hits the inside of the post and goes away.

That really was inches away from giving us a great final 10 minutes.

YELLOW CARD

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Atletico full-back Lucas Hernandez and Marseille sub Clinton Njie both go into the book for clash in front of Atleti boss-for-the-day German Burgos.

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Diego Costa sends Luiz Gustavo one way and then the other before finding Koke - but he's crowded out.

YELLOW CARD

Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid

Marseille captain Luiz Gustavo is finally booked for foul number one million. He swings a bit of an arm in Gabi's face as the midfielder tries to go past him.
