Real Madrid wins the Champions League as Cristiano Ronaldo scores twice

Cristiano Ronaldo netted twice as Zinedine Zidane's side overcame Juventus 4-1 on Saturday

Real beat Juventus 4-1 in the showpiece in Cardiff, as Cristiano Ronaldo starred with two goals in the final.

The two Spanish clubs have dominated in the Champion League, winning six of the last nine titles, but Madrid had gone 12 years without lifting the trophy while Barcelona and Messi thrived.

Ronaldo scored twice in the final, as Real became the first team to win back-to-back titles in the Champions League era.

We've won trophies and of course it is one of the best moments of my career - I have the opportunity to say this every year but it's true!

Buffon has played in three Champions League finals for the Bianconeri, and has been on the losing side on all three occasions, something he wants to rectify before he hangs up his gloves, which is expected to be next season, when he will be 40 years old.

Marcelo was one of the best players on the pitch. In the Champions League is a new thing for many of our players. The La Liga giants are the most successful European club having already won 12 Champions League in their history. But I always knew really because I'd only been training for five days with the team and I was really lucky to be involved, to be honest.




Meanwhile, Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez, has declared that Zinedine Zidane can be their coach for life.

For Ronaldo it was a sensational finale to the season which must now end with him winning his fifth Ballon D'Or.

"We promised to return and we have returned as champions", said Ramos as the squad visited the home of Madrid's local government and the city hall.

Well, maybe to be voted the world's top player again, just for good measure?

With the crowd in a frenzy, four-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo - who finished the season with 42 goals in all competitions and as the Champions League's top scorer - ended up singing, "Cristiano, Ballon d'Or" and the fans joined in.
