It's the first time in the Champions League era (since 1992) that a team has won back-to-back titles. Massimiliano Allegri, the Juventus manager, admitted his players were unable to respond mentally when Madrid regained the lead and also recognised the difference that Ronaldo made on the big occasion once again.

"I scored two goals, am the top scorer in the Champions League again", Ronaldo said.

His career total in all competitions now stands at 600, a record 108 of which have come in the Champions League.

As a player, he was in two consecutive Champions League finals with Juventus, losing both times, including to Madrid in 1998. "Real Madrid have a feeling with finals; they are used to winning them", goalkeeper Gigi Buffon stated prior to the match.

It's nice to see him get rid of all that bleach and go for a sleeker look.

As well as winning back-to-back Champions Leagues, Madrid also beat Barcelona to La Liga two weeks ago to complete a first league and European Cup double for 59 years.

Buffon celebrated wildly when Mario Mandzukic superbly cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo's opener in a thrilling first half against Real Madrid.

United States job growth slowing, firms await reforms
Wages are up slightly, up by 4 cents per hour to an average hourly wage of $26.22, and up 63 cents over the past 12-month period. Despite the headline miss in May, job creation last month was above the three-month average of 121,000 jobs.

"I can't say whether I'll stay for the rest of my life but I'm so grateful for the club for everything it has given me", he said. I obviously came back way too early from my surgery and I suffered a bit and obviously we were considering having more at one point.

One of Madrid's greatest players, Zidane was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when Madrid won the Champions League in 2014.

Keeping up the historic theme, Marca columnist Jose Felix Diaz wrote that Madrid had won finals in many different ways throughout their history, but the second-half performance at the Principality Stadium was the best since the days of Alfredo Di Stefano and Ferenc Puskas in the 1950s.

"We are a very good team and in the second-half we showed how good we are". One player nearly certainly to leave is James Rodriguez, who arrived amid high expectations after the 2014 World Cup but didn't get a lot of playing time under Zidane. Perez said. "He should win his fifth Ballon d'Or now, nobody can argue with that, his end of the season has been spectacular".

"I hope to return many more times and that we can celebrate many more titles".
