Ronaldo helps Real Madrid become 1st team to retain CL title

Ronaldo helps Real Madrid become 1st team to retain CL title

The greatest goalkeeper of his generation, Juventus's Gianluigi Buffon tasted defeat in his third Champions League final as the major missing medal from his illustrious career once again slipped out of his grasp on Saturday.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo deserves the Ballon d'Or more than anyone else, according to club president Florentino Perez.

Isco, who kept Cardiff-born Gareth Bale out of the starting line-up, described it as Real's best performance of the season as they outclassed Italian champions Juventus in the second half.

"Real Madrid deserved to win in the second half". We will have to work a lot to try and win again.

His second in Cardiff, to make it 3-1 in the 64th minute, put the result beyond Juventus and made him top scorer in this season's Champions League with 12 goals - one more than Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri: "I don't think Juventus have reached the end of a cycle at all".

At the double: Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after the final whistle.

Juventus' supporters react after as they follow the UEFA Champions League Final football match between Juventus and Real Madrid on a giant screen, on June 3, 2017 in Piazza San Carlo in Turin.

After the Champions League final, Ronaldo spoke to the media, after winning his man of the match award.

"Clearly, I'll continue... our thoughts are already turning to next year but now we're going to enjoy this".

James, Cavaliers aim to rebound In Game 4 vs. Celtics
The Cavaliers dropped to 10-1 in the post-season with their first loss since game four of last year's finals against Golden State. Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James finished the night with 11 points on 4-for-13 shooting, including 0 for 4 from beyond the arc.

Matters were quickly compounded as Ronaldo turned home at the near post to take his goal tally for club and country to 600.

Ronaldo's first strike at Millennium Stadium was canceled out by Mario Mandzukic's exquisite 27th-minute hook shot.

"The first half was hard, but in the second we were quickly superior". And in classic Ronaldo fashion, he referred to himself in the third person.

"But I'm extremely happy and I'm very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to coach these fantastic players".

Zinedine Zidane's side became the first team to win the competition in consecutive seasons in its modern format thanks to a 4-1 victory over the Serie A champions in Cardiff.
