Adoring Madrid fans demand Ballon d'Or for hero Ronaldo

Real are champions again as Ronaldo double sinks Juventus

The Portuguese striker scored twice to become the Champions League top scorer with a total of 12 goals in the competition, reaching a milestone 600th career goal.

"We have achieved a historic feat", Madrid left back Marcelo said.

"We played very well in the first half, we thought we had enough to win the game".

Goals for United across 292 appearances and six quite brilliant seasons.

"Ballon d'Or? There's no-one who deserves it more than Cristiano".

El Pais said "Real Madrid enter a new golden era", referencing their third Champions League triumph in four seasons.

It was Zidane's stunning volley against Bayer Leverkusen that won Real the 2002 title in Glasgow, while a year ago, five months after replacing Rafael Benitez as coach, he breathed new life into a demotivated team and took them to the Champions League trophy.

The score was at 1-1 after Ronaldo had netted against the run of play and Mario Mandzukic had equalised but Juventus were creating the better chances and Gianluigi Buffon's net had otherwise gone untroubled.

62 die in forest fire still raging in Portugal
Modi condoles loss of lives: PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday condoled the loss of lives in the forest fires in Portugal . Portugal has suffered high temperatures that have reached 40 degrees Celsius (104 degress Fahrenheit) in recent days.

"This season was unbelievable again, last season was wonderful".

However, Real and Ronaldo weren't to be denied, as further goals from Casemiro, Ronaldo and Marco Asensio meant the final 20 minutes were played out to a carnival atmosphere with chants of "champions" and "viva España".

Napoli have also earned a great deal from their Champions League experience, picking up €65.7m.

Ronaldo and the European champions - led by captain Sergio Ramos and coach Zinedine Zidane - returned home to a sea of Madrid fans in the Spanish capital.

The Serie A champions progressed to the showpiece in Cardiff having suffered no defeats and conceded only three goals in their 12 games in the tournament, but Madrid blew them away with a superb second-half showing to secure a 4-1 victory.

"We dropped back too much and it was not good for us, and the second half he changed this. We have to give credit to Zidane, he helped us in 2001 by bringing in his talent and changing the course of history, and now as a coach he is doing a tremendous job and we have to thank him".

It owed much to Madrid controlling midfield, largely thanks to Modric, who set up Ronaldo's second.

Juan Cuadrado was red carded in the 83rd minute of the game.
