My word, that boy Ronaldo is bloody good in the air…
Cristiano Ronaldo’s technically perfect extra-time header was enough to snare the Copa del Rey in Real Madrid’s favour last night (their first since 1993), with Los Blancos running out 1-0 winners in the second of the four-strong Clasico slobberknocker in which we currently find ourselves.
Sergio Ramos’ celebrations began with a rather elegant matador routine in the middle of the Mestalla pitch…
…before culminating by dropping the trophy itself from atop Real’s open-top bus as the squad paraded their trinket through the streets of the rain-soaked Spanish capital in the wee small hours of the morning…
The driver, along with a small phalanx of policemen, then had to curtail the convoy for several minutes and attempt to pry the mangled trophy from under the front bumper of his shiny white bus.
Nice one Sergio, Real’s first Copa del Rey for 18 years and you reduce to scrap metal within a matter of hours.
