Tottenham's unforgettable Champions League adventure ultimately ended with a whimper as another howler from Heurelho Gomes handed Real Madrid a 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane.

Cristiano Ronaldo rubbed salt into the wound when Gomes spilt the forward's 30-yard strike into his own net early in the second half as Madrid set up a mouthwatering semi-final against Barcelona.
