Real Madrid won the Champions League with a 5-3 penalty shootout victory over Atletico Madrid in the final after Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning spot-kick at the San Siro on Saturday.

The match finished 1-1 after extra time with Real captain Sergio Ramos opening the scoring on 15 minutes before Atletico substitute Yannick Carrasco equalised in the 79th.

Antoine Griezmann missed a penalty at the start of the second half for Atletico when he fired his shot against the bar.

Atletico, beaten in their two previous finals appearances, including the most recent against Real in 2014, suffered a series of let-offs before substitute Yannick Carrasco rifled in the equaliser in the 79th to send the game into extra time.
