Real Madrid are the 2016/2017 season champions of Europe. The players arrived back from Cardiff to a hero’s welcome as they paraded the Champions League trophy to thousands of fans in the usual custom from an open-top bus.
The victorious squad were driven through the streets of Madrid in a huge white bus emblazoned with the message ‘Campeones 12’ and the club’s crest to mark their 12th European Cup success which means they are the most successful European club side. They also managed to make a record of being the first European team to win the European Cup back-to-back in the UEFA Champions League era.
White confetti rained down on the squad and the supporters surrounded the bus as Real Madrid toasted winning their Champions League success back home on Sunday evening.
