Dutch football team goalkeeper drops trophy under bus

Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg - usually a safe pair of hands - managed to drop the Dutch league's trophy from the top of a bus as the team took a ride through Amsterdam to celebrate their win.

Amateur video shows the trophy fall backwards off the bus, bounce along the road, before being picked up unscathed by fans.

Stekelenburg was apparently trying to avoid hitting overhead tram wires when he dropped the large silver plate.

The BBC's Chris Hollins reports.
