Real Madrid drop Copa del Rey trophy under bus
Thursday 21 April 2011
Sergio Ramos suffered an embarrassing mishap during Real Madrid's celebration of yesterday's King's Cup triumph when he dropped the trophy off the top of a bus at their victory parade.
Ramos, one of the club captains, had the Cup on top of his head as the bus inched past thousands of Real fans celebrating in the centre of the Spanish capital.
However, as he lowered the silver trophy, which weighs nine kilograms and measures 78 centimetres, it slipped from his grasp and under the front of the open-top vehicle.
"The Cup has fallen, the Cup has fallen," local media quoted him as saying.
Although he added that the trophy was "fine", it was unclear whether it had suffered serious damage.
Cristiano Ronaldo's 103rd-minute header sealed Real's victory over arch rivals Barcelona in Valencia, their first King's Cup win since 1993 and their first trophy under coach Jose Mourinho.
