So after leading Real Madrid to Champions League glory in Cardiff, scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus, the Portuguese genius made sure he had those close to him by his side.

- clinched the Champions League-European Cup double for the first time since 1957-58.

"This season was fantastic again, last season was awesome".

'It's been a tough year with a lot of football and the injuries, but the main thing for me is to get my ankle sorted and give it that rest it needs.

One of the team's strengths this season was to stay competitive even without its stars, relying on talented players such as Francisco "Isco" Alarcon, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio.

Gareth Bale has ruled out a move back to the Premier League from Real Madrid this summer.

- completed 600 strikes for his club and country Portugal after his second goal against Juventus in the final.

Ronaldo said the turning point was an inspirational half-time speech from Zidane, whose words fired Madrid's three-goal blitz in the second period.

For all the talk of tactics, the threat posed by the Italian champions and the romantic notion of Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon finally claiming a Champions League winner's medal, Ronaldo yet again found a way to hog the headlines.

Zinedine Zidane hailed his team's unquenchable thirst for success after becoming the first manager to win successive European Cups since AC Milan's Arrigo Sacchi in 1989 and 1990.

"We promised to return and we have returned as champions", said Ramos as the squad visited the home of Madrid's local government and the city hall.

Despite being a global superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has never forgotten his old mates. "Masters of the universe", ran the headline on the front page of Spanish sports newspaper Marca, which added: "Real Madrid thrash Juve to win the 12th!" - Dortmund also scored the most goals in the group stage this season with 21."Buffon will still be goalie next season and Barzagli with be with us for another year"."No I don't think Juve has reached the end of a cycle at all", Allegri said.

"And Madrid probably one of the teams with the most potential to score goals".

Amazingly, the four-time Ballon d'Or victor has been BOOED by sections of Los Blancos' support this season.

Once Ronaldo took the microphone, he couldn't resist joining the crowd in chanting "Cristiano, Ballon d' Or!", a call for him to win the prestigious player award.
