With the blessing of the man himself, an Italian rocket design company have blasted Francesco Totti's iconic Roma shirt into space.

His final appearance for the Giallorossi was a 3-2 victory over Genoa on May 28.

The 40-year-old will remain at the Stadio Olimpico in a directorial capacity, but in recognition of his stellar efforts on the pitch Roma launched a replica of his final shirt out of the atmosphere.

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.

The plan was then endorsed by Totti, thus leaving Avio - a "worldwide leader in the field of space travel" - to make it a reality.

The former Italy global, who lifted the 2006 World Cup, won one Serie A title with Roma in 2001, and scored 307 goals in 786 appearances for the club, making his debut aged 16.
