Francesco Totti may have retired, but he will always be a star for Roma after a replica of his final iconic jersey was launched into space.

Back Roma to win Serie A title

After 28 years, 786 competitive matches, 307 goals and one Serie A title, Totti brought his one-club career to a close at the end of last season.

The 40-year-old is preparing for "a new phase and a new adventure" as he will remain at the Stadio Olimpico in a directorial capacity.

And the iconic No.10 shirt he gave up after his final appearance in the last game of the season has taken its own voyage into the unknown.
