Juventus were hoping to win the title for captain Gianluigi Buffon, but they were capitulated 4-1 by Zinedine Zidane’s men.
And after Felix Brych’s full-time whistle sounded around Millennium Stadium and it sunk in that Madrid had pipped the Old Ladies to the title, Twitter exploded as what felt the world took to social media platform to congratulate the Santiago Bernabeu giants.
