Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates one of his two goals in the European Champions League final

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice, and Casemiro's 60th minute goal was the victor.

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.

"People won't be able to criticise me because the numbers don't lie".

"Again, I've had an fantastic season. 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!"

"The most important (thing) is that I again had an awesome season, me and my team-mates have done the double".

Now I have two or three days off to rest and after we have a (World Cup) qualifying game for Portugal and we have the Confederations Cup. I'm in a good moment. "I feel like a young boy".

It is the first time Madrid have won both La Liga and the Champions League in the same season for 59 years.

Zinedine Zidane has confirmed he will remain in charge of Real Madrid after overseeing a successful defence of their European crown.

"Having said that, you know how things are".

The former Sporting and United winger-turned-striker turned 32 in February but far from fading he is as risky as ever - perhaps even more effective than in his younger days.

He had a reduced role in the latter stages of Los Blancos' winning Champions League campaign, but came on for a few minutes at the end of the final at the Millennium Stadium when the game was effectively over.

'I'm not going to confirm that I'm going to stay here my whole life, that just doesn't happen.

"That's impossible to say", he said.

From there the squad headed to the club's Santiago Bernabeu where a capacity 81,000 fans are expected for further celebrations, including a lights show and firework display. "I think I'll be here next year!"

Madrid had looked to be facing an uphill battle after Mario Mandzukic cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo's opening goal with an exquisite overhead kick.

Leonardo Bonucci's raking pass was volleyed into the box by Alex Sandro and Gonzalo Higuain kept the ball airborne for Mandzukic to chest it up and send a looping volley over Keylor Navas.

Juan Cuadrado was red carded in the 83rd minute of the game. They controlled the match through the metronomic Luka Modric and struck twice in quick succession to ensure the Italians would suffer a fifth successive European Cup final defeat.

Gianluigi Buffon stood with his hands on his hips, staring vacantly into the distance and not moving for what felt like an age. The same applies to Andrea Barzagli, who will still be with us for at last another year.

'They still have lots to give this club.

"If our current team is complemented with new players, we'll be really competitive in the Champions League next year".
