Turkish international star Arda Turan joined his Barcelona teammates as part of their annual festive trip to local hospitals.

Turan visited the Hospital de Sant Joan de Déu along with Andrés Iniesta, Ter Stegen, Arda Turan, Vermaelen, Luis Suárez, Juan Carlos Unzué plus directors Silvio Elías, Pau Vilanova and Emili Rousaud.

Barcelona players and staff did the rounds at local hospitals delivering gifts and putting smiles on children that are currently away from their family.

Epiphany is the traditional day in Catalonia for giving presents and the FC Barcelona Foundation gets involved in the festivities by delivering presents to children at hospitals.


Turan shared a tweet from his trip to the hospital alongside his teammates and some of the kids wearing a Barcelona shirt.

Barcelona also hold an open doors training session at the Miniestadi which attracted over 10,000 people according to the official club website.

The squad was split up into two teams with Turan training alongside Iniesta, Suárez, Sandro, Munir, Ter Stegen, Masip, Vermaelen, Arda Turan, Aleix Vidal, Piqué and Sergio.
