Real Madrid have shown off their renovation work at the Santiago Bernabeu with stunning drone footage posted on their social media accounts.
Their ambitious renovation of their famous home – which stretches back to 2019 – is believed to be worth €575million (£494m), and is designed to bring the iconic stadium into the modern age.
Though the process has hit delays, the stadium debuted its new roof and pitch during their 2-1 victory over Getafe on Saturday in their first home game of the season.
Before the match, Real Madrid shared a video showing drone footage both outside and inside the stadium.
Notable features showed included the new roof, a terrace surrounding the stadium at its highest level which will provide match-goers with a cutting-edge taste of hospitality, as well as the new pitch.

It also shows off the stunning architecture of the stadium, which has a futuristic look to bring the iconic venue into the current day.
The ambitious initial deadline of 2022 passed and the construction work, overseen by club president Florentino Perez, extended into this summer.
Last year, Madrid signed a deal with Legends and Sixth Street, handing over the operation of the stadium to the company for 20 years and banking £309m.
Moving forward, the club will receive 70 per cent of the revenue from the ground and estimate that revenues from the use of the venue will increase by £129m a year.
In July it was reported that the work will will be finished in September or October of this year, with its official opening pencilled in for the winter break in December.

After playing under the roof for the first time, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti said: ‘It’s a spectacular atmosphere, there’s something new.
‘I think the fans pushed a lot today, it’s a much more enclosed atmosphere.
‘You can feel that the fans pushed — it’s going to be a very important help and it was today.’
Jude Bellingham scored a last gasp winner to rescue three points for Ancelotti’s side.
