Sergio Ramos almost gets hit by tree during Real Madrid's Champions League parade

Sergio Ramos' night to remember celebrating Real Madrid's Champions League win almost became an evening to forget when he almost lost his head to a tree. No, really.

The Spanish defender scored Los Blancos' only goal in the final against Atletico Madrid at the San Siro, before Yannick Carrasco equalised to send the game to extra-time and penalties.

Juanfran's miss from 12 yards in the shootout gave Cristiano Ronaldo the chance to seal a record 11th European crown - an opportunity he was never likely to pass up. 

That of course sparked jubilant scenes across the white half of Madrid, and the players celebrated the next day with an obligatory open-top bus parade.

Ramos looked to be enjoying himself on the top deck, only to spot at the last minute that a tree branch was hurtling straight for his head. Quick as a flash, the 30-year-old dodged out of the way to ensure all his features remained in tact - and he could even see the funny side of it afterwards.

Check out the video of the incident below.

Of course, this isn't the first time that Ramos has got himself in a spot of trouble on an open-top bus parade.

It was the former Sevilla defender who dropped the Copa del Rey trophy under a bus back in 2011 while celebrating their 1-0 win over Barcelona in Valencia.

Do you think Real Madrid deserved to win the Champions League final against Atletico?
