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

"I prepared myself for this, you win the biggest prizes because of what you do at the end of the season", Ronaldo, who has benefited from playing fewer games than in previous campaigns, said as his team mates celebrated.

"I think people don't have words to criticise, because the numbers don't lie", he told reporters after receiving the man-of-the-match award from his former Manchester United mentor Alex Ferguson.

"This year was incredible again, last year was fantastic too. This is one of the best moments of my career - I have the chance to say this every year", he said. Now I have two or three days off to rest and after we have a (World Cup) qualifying game for Portugal and we have the Confederations Cup.

The 20th club trophy of Ronaldo's career comes at the end of a season in which he also helped Madrid end a five-year title drought in Spain.

"It's a long season, but I'm motivated, I'm happy".

The missile was believed to be a Scud-class ballistic missile and flew about 450 km (280 miles), South Korean officials said. North Korea on Thursday fired multiple land-to-ship missiles off its east coast, South Korea's military has said.

With its third European title in four seasons, coach Zinedine Zidane has re-established Madrid as the premier team on the continent.

The former Benfica and Manchester United winger-turned-striker turned 32 in February but far from fading he is as risky as ever - perhaps even more effective than in his younger days.

"We are disappointed. We played very well in the first half, we thought we had enough to win the game", the 39-year-old said.

Mourinho is already attempting to rebuild his squad, but Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann will not be a part of his new team, with the French forward choosing to commit his short-term future to Real's city rivals in the midst of the club's transfer ban. It was a very hard task to arrive until the final and we fought until the end. "It was not easy".

Juventus last won the Champions League in 1995/96, the season he made his debut for Parma at the age of 17, five years before he signed for the Turin giants.
