(of this live text)

Real Madrid are the champions of Europe for the 11th time, four times more than anyone else.

Check out the developing match report from tonight's game.

On our football index later tonight, you'll be able to catch Jermaine Jenas' player ratings from Milan.

But it's goodnight from me and I'll leave you with this picture...

Definitely can't see any Atleti fans buying these. Go home, mate.

Real Madrid players are throwing Zinedine Zidane in the air. Luckily they're catching him each time.

More successful than some birthday bumps I saw in my schooldays.

Yannick Carrasco went to the crowd to kiss his girlfriend after his equaliser. Didn't get booked. Not sure how that works.

Think that's the first time I've ever wanted the Google drop down option of 'girlfriend' which seems to come up whenever you search for a footballer.


Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric tells BT Sport: "We won it again but it was a hard game from the beginning to the end. It was difficult tonight because of so much humidity but we fight until the end and we made it. We are very happy and proud, we were calm on penalties and we deserved to win. I feel sorry for Atletico but I am glad for ourselves.

"This is the competition of Real Madrid, the 'undecima', this trophy belongs to Real and that is why it it the best club in the world.

"Manager Zinedine Zidane said it was about the mentality and we had to believe we could achieve the victory."

Luka Modric kisses the trophy

Gareth Bale takes a picture with Richard Gere. Not sure this kind of thing happened with Real's first European Cup wins in the 1950s. What would be the equivalent? Alfredo di Stefano and Richard Harris?

Not much happiness on my timeline about Real Madrid winning, it appears.

Real Madrid's players are now bringing their children for pictures of the trophies.

Like when you'd get your picture taken with your parents and Santa at Christmas. But with the Champions League trophy instead of a man in fancy dress.

'A nice touch'

Congratulations @realmadrid for winning the Champions League title in Milan #UCLfinal

This reminds me of when Accrington congratulated Oxford and Bristol Rovers on their promotion from League Two on the final day. No? Just me then.

  • Sergio Ramos became the fifth player to score in two different Champions League finals, and the first defender to do so (also Raul, Samuel Eto’o, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo).
  • Indeed, Ramos joins Messi and Eto’o as one of three players to score in his first two Champions League finals.
  • Only Marcello Lippi (3) has lost more Champions League finals as a manager than Diego Simeone (2).
  • This was the eighth Champions League final to go to extra-time, and the seventh to go to a penalty shootout.
  • This was the third time the Champions League final shootout was contested between teams from the same country (also 2003 and 2008).
  • Zinedine Zidane is the second man (Miguel Munoz) to win the European Cup with Real Madrid as both a player and a manager.

Ready for some post-match stats, yeah?

Adiós DÉCIMA!! Bye bye DÉCIMA!! Bienvenida UNDÉCIMA!! Welcome UNDÉCIMA!! 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆

Former Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas, now at Porto, has been enjoying tonight's game.

Otis James Umukolo: Ronaldo was a shadow of himself all through the game but he converted the most important kick of the game.

Remember the time Ronaldo waited to take the last - "glory" - penalty at Euro 2012, but Portugal lost after 4 kicks?…

Cristiano Ronaldo has timed it perfectly tonight though.

We are so proud of our fans! In Madrid,in Milan,around the world you have proved to be the best, the very best #NeverStopBelieving #UCLFinal

For the 11th time a Real Madrid captain holds the European Cup aloft. This time it's Sergio Ramos.

The man. The legend.

Ex-Spurs & England midfielder on 5 live

"Zidane has been phenomenal. He has come in, use all of his experience and get the players playing. I am sure he will enjoy this moment as much as he did when he was a player."

Zinedine Zidane has constantly had to admit his future is uncertain as Real Madrid boss. They've always been secretive about how long his contract is.

Surely even Real couldn't give him the boot now. Surely!

Zinedine Zidane leads the way, Marcelo - with his shirt on back to front (so his name is at the front...) limps behind him.

Now Real Madrid's players climb the San Siro steps to get their medals and trophy.

'Penalties are a lottery'

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo tells BT Sport: "The penalties are always a lottery, you never know what will happen but our team showed more experience and we showed it by scoring all the penalties. A fantastic night for us.

"It is the end of the season and people are not fit, we have to rest and we have to go for the Euros."

Atletico players are getting their medals now. None of them are looking enthused, as you'd understand.

Substitute Thomas Partey's mood is not matching his name as he gets his.

Real Madrid's players do a guard of honour as Atletico's players go up to get their runners-up medals. Some of the Atleti players are in tears. 

They've got no trophies to show for another great season.

English referee Mark Clattenburg gets his medal and gets a good boo! Not sure what he did wrong really.

All of Real Madrid's five penalties went right corner, say Opta. Good spot, lads.

'We deserve it'

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale tells BT Sport: "I can't feel a lot, I am cramping up. What an amazing feeling, in extra time we showed resilience, what we are made of and winning the 11th.

"The boys gave everything, the club, the fans have been amazing on this journey and deserve it.

"Atletico gave it a great game and we feel a little bit sorry for them but you have to win a final.

"Some of their players were struggling but we tried not to show it too much. I was nervous after the penalty, not while taking it.

"We [Wales] will be going for the European Championship title now."

Atletico Madrid are the club that have played the most European Cup finals without winning any.

This is the third season in a row that someone in their first season as a Champions League manager has reached the final.

In 2014, it was Atletico boss Diego Simeone, who lost to Real.

Last year, Barca boss Luis Enrique beat Juventus.

And now Zinedine Zidane, who only took charge of Real Madrid in January, has beaten Atletico.

Fernando Torres is in tears on the pitch. He's won the tournament before with Chelsea - and a World Cup and two Euros with Spain.

But he openly admitted this was the big one for him, playing for his boyhood club.

He has been so good in the past three months but was looking like his old (Chelsea and AC Milan, not Liverpool) self. A real shame for him.

The trophy engraver is now etching Real Madrid's name onto the Champions League. He's doing the word Madrid now, he probably could have had that word ready last week.

Rafael Benitez started the season as Real Madrid boss. And he's probably watching this at home as his old team celebrate the European title, as he prepares for the Football League with Newcastle.

Eleven European titles for Real Madrid


Cristiano Ronaldo, who has his shirt off in a textbook move, hugs Zinedine Zidane on the pitch. Huge celebrations for Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid fans are in tears, as you'd expect. Their second Champions League final in three years, and they've lost both. To their much more successful neighbours.
