The Uruguayan forward was predictably full of praise for Barcelona team-mate after a Clasico victory that came largely thanks to the Argentine.

Barcelona star Luis Suarez congratulated "the best player in history" Lionel Messi for his milestone Clasico goal against Real Madrid.

The goal was Messi's 500th for the club and came at the perfect moment, reigniting the La Liga title race.

Suarez, who played 90 minutes in the crucial win, hailed his team-mate for his landmark goal.

"The team was great! Everybody's effort was spectacular," he wrote on Twitter, pictured with Messi.
