It was a 12th European Cup triumph for Madrid and a third in four years as Zinedine Zidane's side became the first to retain the title in the Champions League era.

More than 1,000 Juventus soccer fans watching the Champions League final on screens in one of Turin's main squares have been injured after loud bangs created panic and mayhem.

A calf injury also saw him nearly miss the Champions League final, but he made his return off the bench in Saturday's 4-1 win over Juventus.

Having lost yet another Champions League final in the colours of Juventus, goalkeeping legend Gianluigi Buffon says he will try again next season to lift the one club trophy that has so far eluded him.

"It's been a hard season and I've worked hard". The views of users published on News24 are therefore their own and do not necessarily represent the views of News24. "We have the world's best players and plenty of youth". The former Swedish player Robin Soderling was impressive by Mario Mandzukic's goal in the first half.

"We have won three Champions Leagues in four seasons so we have to be in that category", he said.

"Me and my teammates, we win the double".

But the granite-like trio of Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci cracked after Juventus had been the better side in a first half that ended 1-1. The Portuguese star continues beating records and with the two goals he scored in the final, he has beaten Lionel Messi as the Champions League top scorer in this edition with 12 goals.

"Tomorrow at 8.45 I'm going to be in front of the TV for sure supporting my team, hoping that Real Madrid will win another time", said Nadal.

"To speak about myself as an individual, I don't need to speak because the numbers don't lie".

Juve had conceded only three goals en route to Wales, only for their miserly defence to be ruthlessly exposed by the Spanish La Liga champions.

He's not the only Real Madrid player to shave his head.

"I feel like this is the best team in history", Alvaro Mora, a fan who had travelled over 500 kilometres from the southern city of Almeria to take in the celebrations, told AFP.
