Oops! Real Madrid's Trophy Crushed By Bus
April 21, 2011
Hours after Real Madrid finally got their hands on the coveted Copa del Rey trophy they let it slip through their fingers and fall under the wheels of their open-top bus. Madrid were parading the 15kg (33lb) silverware in front of thousands of euphoric fans at the iconic Cibeles fountain in the Spanish capital when World Cup-winning defender Sergio Ramos accidentally dropped it as he waved to the crowd.
Video footage captured the moment the Cup slipped from his grasp, tumbling to the ground before being run over. Police rushed to retrieve the crushed trophy and gave it to the bus driver but it was not displayed to the public again.
Real Madrid won the King's Cup final after defeating arch-rivals Barcelona with an extra-time goal headed in by Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. It is the first time they have won the Cup since 1993. Next week Jose Mourinho's team will tackle their Catalan adverseries again - this time in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Whoever wins the two-legged tie will play either Schalke 04 or Manchester United in the final at Wembley on May 28.
