Real parade in Madrid with 12th UCL trophy

Thanks to a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo and goals from Casemiro and Marco Asensio, Los Galacticos succeeded in winning their 12th Champions League title.

Modric has revealed that head coach Zidane had encouraged his players to use quick passing down the flanks and deliveries on the ground in order to make life as hard as possible for the Juve back three of Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini.

Madrid also secured a league and cup double for the first time in nearly 60 years, leaving Zidane ecstatic in his post-match news conference.

Bale's injury woes this season - and the impressive displays of Spanish playmaker Isco in his absence - have led to suggestions that the Wales striker could return to the Premier League this summer.

Ronaldo is now arguably the best player in the world, having won the 2016 Ballon d'Or and being tipped to win the 2017 award as well, but the one man who helped him become the player the 32-year-old is today is Sir Alex Ferguson.

He said: "I don't see why we can't be in that company".

On everyone's lips is the huge protest on Monday to demand an inquiry into corruption at the highest echelons of power. He focuses on corruption issues and has attracted a wide following through savvy use of internet video.

Real Madrid won the Champions League for the 12th time on Saturday, becoming the only team in Champions League era to retain the title.

Zidane has only one year left on his contract, but is widely expected to remain at the team's helm.

Ronaldo's maiden trophy came at the Principality Stadium when, aged just 19, he headed the opening goal as Manchester United beat Millwall in the 2004 FA Cup final.

Gareth Bale wants to make more history at Real Madrid after pledging his future to the Spanish giants.

"It's been a special season", said Ronaldo, who scored twice against Juventus to finish as the competition's top scorer for the fifth straight year. We have won the Champions League three times in four seasons so we have to be in that category. That is what we worked on and that is how we scored three of our goals in the final.
