Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero during last May’s Champions League final.
After an rather anonymous 120 minutes, the Portuguese stepped up to smash home the winning penalty shootout as Real Madrid heaped yet more misery on Atletico Madrid.
In 2014, Los Blancos defeated their rivals to win their 10th European title. Ronaldo put the finishing touches on that one, too, scoring Madrid’s fourth in a 4-1 win.
So you can’t say that Ronaldo isn’t a big time player. And he certainly knows how to celebrate those big wins, too.
Footage has emerged of the 31-year-old’s celebrations on the bus as Real Madrid made their way to Milan airport.
With music blaring in the background, Ronaldo is seen busting some moves in the middle of the bus.
CR7 didn’t make much of an impact on the pitch - his penalty aside - but he showed his leadership in the dressing-room at half-time.
Footage has appeared of the former Manchester United star delivering a rousing half-time team talk, with Real leading 1-0 at the time.
“Listen, I want to say something: we're 45 minutes from making history,” he says, per AS.
“Tiredness is psychological sometimes. We need to play another 45 flat out. We can because we're fine. It's mental. We're 45 from making history. We defend as we've defended in the first half.”
Ronaldo’s words didn’t have the desired effect, Yannick Carrasco equalising with 11 minutes remaining.
Still, the winger had the last laugh.
