WATCH: Trailer For Amazon's Fernando Torres Documentary Is As Lethal As Him In His Prime

Having come through the ranks of his boyhood club, it's arguable that no other player in Atletico Madrid's recent history means as much to their fans as 'El Niño'.

Having stayed with the club following their relegation to the Segunda Division, Torres was a Colchonero through and through but as the club became increasingly more unstable off the pitch, on it, Torres was quickly establishing himself as one of the best young strikers in Europe.

Well, in Amazon's new documentary Fernando Torres – The Last Symbol, viewers will get to see an in-depth look at the career of the World Cup-winning striker.

The documentary will follow his glistening career for club and country, starting with his breakthrough days at his boyhood club, Atletico Madrid, and those famous days at Liverpool when he was one of, if not the, most lethal striker in world football.

FYI, we really love the fact that the trailer included the goal where he turns John Terry inside-out before scoring.

However, Torres' career was something of an anomaly after he left Liverpool for Chelsea because he won more trophies during a period when his form practically deserted him- that miss against Manchester United will live long in the memory.

Despite struggling to reach his best levels at Stamford Bridge, he still won the FA Cup, Champions League, and the Europa League. Torres also famously scored vs Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final.

After returning to Atletico Madrid, the striker won the Europa League and he was also on the losing end of the Champions League final in 2016.

Despite the ups and downs of his club career, Torres' international career was sensational as he participated in six major tournaments with Spain and during this time, La Roja won three tournaments in a row from 2008 to 2012, with Torres scoring in the finals of both Euro 2008 and Euro 2012.

He also won the Golden Boot in 2012, Irish fans will probably remember his goal against the boys in green during the group stages too.

Take a look at what's in store when Fernando Torres -The Last Symbol is released on Amazon Prime on September 18.
