Cesc Fabregas's controversial new head phone Advert

Barcelona are trying to stop a controversial advert starring Cesc Fabregas from being aired.
The commercial, for Beats by Dre headphones, sees the former Arsenal star on Barcelona's team coach, heading to the Clasico.
As Fabregas heads to the game, he sees Real Madrid fans in the streets, chanting derogatory songs about Catalonia, waving flags, brandishing flares and running along the streets being chased by police.

To block out the noise ahead of the clash against Real Madrid, Fabregas puts on a pair of the headphones and can finally ignore the chaos.
But Barcelona's president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, says that the club has asked for the advert not to be shown.
He said: 'We don't like the message it sends out, which is why we have asked for it to be withdrawn.'
The advert, which lasts nearly two-and-a-half minutes, was due to be shown for the first time in Spain at half-time in the Clasico on Sunday night.
It was screened in the UK on BT Sport during Chelsea's 6-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.
