The Real Madrid star grabbed the microphone at the Santiago Bernabeu and started singing a tune in his honor

Not content with consecutive Champions League titles and a drought-ending La Liga crown, Cristiano Ronaldo quickly turned his attention to individual honours and the Ballon d'Or.

WATCH: Ronaldo leads Real celebrations

Ronaldo produced a match-winning display in Cardiff on Saturday, scoring twice to lead Madrid to a 4-1 win over Juventus and their 12th European crown.

No team had retained their trophy in the Champions League era until Ronaldo and his team-mates in the Welsh city, and it sparked wild scenes in Madrid.

Back home at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo took centre stage as he sung about his own candidacy for the Ballon d'Or, which he claimed ahead of Barcelona foe and five-time winner Lionel Messi last year.

Ronaldo and the European champions — led by captain Sergio Ramos and coach Zinedine Zidane — returned home to a sea of Madrid fans in the Spanish capital.
