Adoring Madrid fans demand Ballon d’Or for hero Ronaldo

“I feel like this is the best team in history,” Alvaro Mora, a fan who had travelled over 500 kilometres from the southern city of Almeria to take in the celebrations, told AFP.

And like Real’s performance on the pitch at the Principality Stadium as they tore the Italian champions apart with goals from Casemiro and Marco Asensio adding to Ronaldo’s double, there was no sign of the Madrid fans’ tiring of success.

“It is the best thing that could happen,” said Colombian shop worker Jose Ordonez, 54, who took in the festivities with his two sons.

“We promised to return and we have returned as champions,” added Ramos as the squad visited the home of Madrid’s local government and the city hall.

“I hope to return many more times and that we can celebrate many more titles.”
