Luka Modric believes Real Madrid will dominate European football for some time

And Croatia playmaker Modric, who brilliantly set up Ronaldo's second goal, was quick to pay tribute to manager Zinedine Zidane. They're talking Tiger, their best coaches and how top players blagged their way through the dressing room, before Stephen tries his hand at our Chipping Challenge.

Juventus lost the Champions League Final to Real Madrid, but still earned more from the tournament this season than any other club: €109m.

"I can't say whether I'll stay for the rest of my life but I'm so grateful for the club for everything it has given me", he said.

But Bale was reduced to the role of bit-part player after recent injury problems, sent on only for the final 13 minutes at the National Stadium of Wales with the game already won.

His side may have been destroyed 4-1, but Mario Mandzukic can look back fondly on this effort.

Juve had been bidding to complete a Treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League successes and Allegri said they could still reflect on their season with pride.

In a fine, tricky act of management, Zidane last August persuaded Ronaldo that some pause in his insatiable appetite for ever higher numbers - more goals, more games - might benefit the player and the club.

Real were revitalised after the break, scoring three times to seal victory.

REAL Madrid players were labelled "insatiable" and "masters of the universe" by an adoring Spanish press yesterday after writing more UEFA Champions League history by thrashing Juventus 4-1 to win the trophy for the 12th time.

His second on Saturday, to make it 3-1 in the 64th minute, put the game beyond Juve and made him top scorer in this season's Champions League with 12 goals - one more than Barcelona's Lionel Messi, who he is constantly compared to.

His career total in all competitions now stands at 600, a record 108 of which have come in the Champions League. "I don't want to say I'm very good because before I was scandalously bad and now I'm supposed to be the best", Zidane said modestly.

"This team believed from the start, and after a lot of hard work we reaped the benefits", Ramos told the crowd while wearing a fake crown on his head and a Spanish flag draped around his shoulders.

"It has been an incredible end to the season by us. I can not explain why we played like we did in the second half", said Juve captain Gianluigi Buffon, now a three-time beaten finalist. It's the first time in the Champions League era (since 1992) that a team has won back-to-back titles.

"We played very well in the first half".

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

When Juventus enjoyed spells of pressure in the first half, they largely held firm.
