This is one of the best moments of my career - I have the chance to say this every year!
Real Madrid star Gareth Bale insists he is happy at the European champions and has no plans to leave despite speculation over his future.
"I was happy I got on and happy to play a part".
With a third European title in four seasons, coach Zinedine Zidane has re-established Madrid as the premier team on the continent. Zidane's cool demeanour has helped Madrid cope with the intense pressure at the Bernabeu and now, just 17 months into his reign, he is reaping the rewards as Real celebrate a first La Liga and Champions League double since 1958.
The Serie A champions progressed to the showpiece in Cardiff having suffered no defeats and conceded only three goals in their 12 games in the tournament, but Madrid blew them away with a superb second-half showing to secure a 4-1 victory.
"I think the project is well laid out", Madrid president Florentino Perez said.
His display also made the Madrid fans who have previously whistled him look all the more absurd.
Wonder Woman - DC finally get it right
In that vein, a recent Tumblr post has gone viral for raising an interesting point about Wonder Woman . She changes with the times. "That's why I let her see it".
"It's the reason why I came to Real Madrid - to win trophies".
"The squad has been great and it's been good for me individually too". Ronaldo scored twice in the final, finishing the season with 16 goals in his last 10 games.
The former Tottenham player joined Real in 2013 for a then world record fee of £85m.
For Ronaldo it was a sensational finale to the season which must now end with him winning his fifth Ballon D'Or. 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.
Asensio scored one of the goals in the final on Saturday.
For Ronaldo and Zidane, it will be just another opportunity to show which team is really in charge.
