More than a thousand Juventus fans injured in stampede in Turin

Madrid won their 12th Champions League title, and third in four years, with two goals by Cristiano Ronaldo, one by Casemiro and another by Marco Asensio.

Speaking after the game, Ronaldo said, "It has been an incredible end to the season by us".

I'll go as far as I can.

Thousands of fans have headed home after Cardiff hosted the Champions League final. "I prepared myself well for the final part of the season and I scored some important goals".

Madrid became the first team to defend the European Cup successfully since Arrigo Sacchi's AC Milan in 1990 and the first to achieve the feat since the competition relaunched as the Champions League in 1992. "I think we feel that we are an wonderful team".

Two goals in four minutes after the hour mark effectively settled the final as Casemiro's shot from 30 yards beat Gianluigi Buffon via a deflection off Sami Khedira before Ronaldo converted a Luka Modric cross after a flowing move to make it 3-1.

Perez insists he would like to keep all of Madrid's squad together, but said he would hold talks with head coach Zidane to determine their transfer plans.

Ronaldo was handed the man-of-the-match award by Sir Alex Ferguson, his former manager at Manchester United, after a display that made Madrid fans who have previously whistled him look all the more absurd.

"I still have one more year on my contract, so that means I have one more chance of winning the Champions League", he told Sky Sport Italia.

Thousands of fans had gathered to watch the Champions League final on a giant screen in San Carlo Square.

Dries Mertens gave Napoli hope in the second leg with a goal in the 24th minute, but Madrid hit back with an equalizer from Sergio Ramos, an own-goal by Mertens and a stoppage-time strike by Alvaro Morata. "We've won trophies and of course it is one of the best moments of my career - I have the opportunity to say this every year but it's true!"

The Galaticos took the game by the scruff in the second half, pinning the Old Ladies in their half for most of the opening minutes.

"We've made more history", Bale said. "I think the people don't have words to criticise because the numbers don't lie".

"This year was wonderful again, last year was fantastic too". Perez said. "He should win his fifth Ballon d'Or now, nobody can argue with that, his end of the season has been spectacular".

The reason for the panic was that a bannister of a stairway to an underground parking lot collapsed - some thought they heard explosions - which led to people getting injured when they tried to flee the area, the reports said.
