Real Madrid's Casilla steals official's board to celebrate 'No. 12'!

Comments()
The deputy goalkeeper was in high spirits as victory loomed, and showed his delight with a special - and rather unorthodox - message

As original celebrations go, they don't come more epic than Kiko Casilla's glee for Real Madrid at the end of the Champions League final. 

Madrid were ultimately deserved winners of the clash in Cardiff, with two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and further strikes from Casemiro and Marco Asensio sealing a convincing 4-1 victory over Juventus.

Same old sad story for Juventus

Casilla could not contain himself in the final minutes as victory over Juventus approached, and he decided to mark the occasion in a very special way. 

The substitute relieved the fourth official of his board, used to show substitutions and added time, and sent his own message to fans. 

Few Real Madrid fans would have needed the significance of the No. 12 that flashed up from the Millennium Stadium explained, as the shot-stopper celebrated the record 12th European Cup/Champions League title taken by the Merengue. 

Keylor Navas might have been between the posts for the game itself, but at least his deputy managed to make his own mark on the game!
