The Polish international was playing his final home game for BVB before he leaves the club this summer to join FC Bayern München, and gave a special message of thanks to Dortmund's "unbelievable" support at the final whistle.
bundesliga.com brings you the post-match reaction from Signal Iduna Park...
Robert Lewandowski: It's a really, really emotional moment for me. What the fans showed me before, during and after the game here was unbelievable. I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who was here for this wonderful send-off.
Lukasz Piszczek: We got a little bit lucky at the start because we could have gone two goals down but fortunately Mats [Hummels] cleared it off the line. Then we managed to play our own game, looked good up front and got three goals before half time.
Niklas Süle: We started very well but then we dropped off for a long period, and you can't do that against a team like Dortmund. We threw everything forward in the last few minutes but it just wasn’t enough for an equaliser.
