Cristiano Ronaldo was joined on the pitch afterwards by girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, brother Hugo Aveiro and crying son Cristiano Jr who was clearly overcome with emotion after seeing his father spearhead another memorable night for Europe's most successful club as Real Madrid celebrated retaining the Champions League against Juventus.The former Manchester United man was the star performer, scoring twice to take his tally to 104 Champions League goals - and he was congratulated by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson in the tunnel after the fourth triumph of his career in the competition.RELATED: Ronaldo's girlfriend sparks more pregnancy rumours
The celebrations will last long into the early hours of Sunday morning after Madrid overpowered the Serie A champions to be crowned Champions of Europe once more, with Gareth Bale playing his part. Barcelona congratulated their fiercest rivals via Twitter and they were not alone. Even the American rapper will.i.am, back fronting the Black Eyed Peas, wanted to be part of the celebrations as he collared Ronaldo for a word prior to the trophy presentation.
Ronaldo was voted man of the match as he reached 600 career goals with another brace against the Old Lady, either side of Mario Mandzukic's sublime equaliser that had put the game in the balance at half-time.
But having shaded the opening 45 minutes, Massimiliano Allegri's side were outplayed thereafter and while Madrid become the first side to retain the trophy in 27 years, since AC Milan, it would appear Gianluigi Buffon will never get his hands on Europe's most coveted prize.Pictures courtesy: @dailymail.co.uk
