WATCH: Griezmann suffers double-nutmeg humiliation on first day of Barca training

Its one of the ultimate footballing ignominies and new Barcelona signing Antoine Griezmann was forced to endure a double measure of it as he was nutmegged twice in quick succession on his first day of training.

The French World Cup winner finally made the switch to the Catalan giants from Atletico Madrid last week in a deal worth a reported €120 million (US$135 million).

He was officially unveiled over the weekend and linked up with his new teammates for training for the first time on Monday.

But he suffered a double moment of embarrassment as he was nutmegged twice during a rondo.

The French forward, 28, laughed off the embarrassing episodes while his teammates also appeared to go easier on him than they perhaps would for more established members of the team.

Griezmann was also joined at training by fellow new signings Frenkie de Jong and goalkeeper Neto, as Barca bid to retain the La Liga title they won last season and improve on their semifinal Champions League exit.
