Bale: We've made history and will enjoy the moment

Bale: We've made history and will enjoy the moment

Madrid have become the first club since 1990 to win consecutive Champions League titles, as Zinedine Zidane's side win an unprecedented 12th championship.

Making a perfectly-timed run to the near post, he met Luka Modric's cross with an ice-cool finish that ensured Madrid would become the first team since AC Milan 27 years ago to win back to back European Cups.

Once again, Ronaldo was the real deal for Real, scoring twice to make him the Champions League's top marksman for the fifth successive season.

One of Madrid's greatest players, Zidane was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when Madrid won the Champions League in 2014.

What a season it was been for Ronaldo, adding the Champions League title to his Euro 2016, La Liga and FIFA Club World Cup winner's medals.

But their defeat means they have now lost their last five Champions League finals.

"My only criticism of my team is that after the second goal we should have found a solution to stay in the game", Allegri said.

"I finished the season very well".

Van plows into pedestrains at London Bridge
Several violent incidents - two of which are believed to be "terrorist incidents" - have occurred in London , England, tonight. The BBC has reported that the police are searching for three suspects in relation to the Borough Market incident.

Having been on for barely 20 minutes, Cuadrado was sent off for two bookable offences, but the winger could count himself unlucky as his push on Sergio Ramos was wholly exaggerated by the defender.

Bonucci's pass from defence was helped on by both Alex Sandro and Higuain - the ball not leaving the ground throughout - to set up Mandzukic and the Croatia global took one touch and unleashed a magnificent overhead kick into the top corner, with Navas not close to it.

Domination was verified after the break when Madrid went back in front - through Casemiro's strike which deflected off Sami Khedira - and this time the lead was retained.

Zidane opted to leave Gareth Bale out of the starting lineup even though the Cardiff native was fully recovered from his injuries.

Twenty casualties in terror attacks on London Bridge
Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the "terrible incident in London" was being treated as "a potential act of terrorism ". Police in riot gear filled the streets and told pedestrians and reporters to run and leave the area as fast as possible.

- This year's Champions League saw 380 goals scored in 125 games, with an average of 3.04 goals per game.

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

When Ronaldo was immortalised with a less than flattering bronze bust at Madeira airport recently, there was much laughter at the expense of a man never shy about displaying his chiselled body.
