Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as holders Real Madrid were crowned champions of Europe for a record 12th time after outclassing 10-man Juventus in a high-quality Champions League final in Cardiff.

For his 105th goal in UEFA Champions League ensured Real Madrid were going on to lift the title for a second year running.

REAL MADRID midfielder was named as Dream Team's star player in the Champions League final after his goal restored Los Blancos' lead against Juventus.

Zinedine Zidane's men have also won Madrid's first La Liga and European Cup double since 1958 and Bale said it was just reward for all their hard work this season.

No team since AC Milan in 1989 and 1990, when the tournament was a knockout competition known as the European Cup, had won back-to-back titles.

Cristiano Ronaldo placed a attractive shot into Buffon's net on 20 minutes, but 7 minutes later Mario Mandzukic scored one of the goals of the tournament as he deftly controlled the ball on his chest before lobbing the goalkeeper with an exquisite overhead.

After receiving the award, Ronaldo said: "This season has been wonderful". Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane: "I don't want to say I'm very good because before I was scandalously bad as a coach and now I'm supposed to be the best". As a team we played very good in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and today but at the end you need a guy to score to win this title and he did.

He originally said he was coming from "L.A." and on his way to "Orange County" before stating that he had no idea where he was. Woods struggled to walk in a straight line, had a hard time following instructions and slurred his speech several times.

Football legends like Luis Figo, Clarence Seedorf, Ryan Giggs, Luis Garcia and Marcel Desailly, who are mostly Champions League winners themselves, had said this season's edition seemed to be one of the most intriguing in years.

Juve conceded more goals on Saturday than the three they had in the 12 games they played to reach the final as a much-vaunted Real attack v Juve defence scenario went emphatically Madrid's way.

"People don't have words to criticize", Ronaldo said, "because the numbers don't lie".

Juventus equalised in the 27th minute with a volley by Mandzukic.

Luka Modric had a 25-yard effort caught by Gianluigi Buffon and Marcelo narrowly failed to pick out Ronaldo with a cross from the left before Casemiro put Madrid ahead in the 61st minute.

Ronaldo's first strike at Millennium Stadium was canceled out by Mario Mandzukic's exquisite 27th-minute hook shot.
