Real Madrid lift the Champions League trophy

Sergio Ramos has wished Mohamed Salah a quick recovery from the shoulder injury which forced the Liverpool striker off the pitch just 30 minutes into the Champions League final.

Reds player of the year Salah left the field in tears in Kiev after damaging his shoulder following a tussle with Real Madrid captain Ramos.

Salah sustained the injury after Ramos kept hold of his arm as they fell to the floor, with some critics suggesting the Spain defender should have been punished for the incident.

It remains to be seen if the Egypt international will be able to feature in this summer's World Cup, but after his side won the match 3-1 to secure a 13th European title, Ramos hopes to see the 25-year-old back in action soon.

He wrote on his official Twitter account: "Sometimes football shows you its good side and others the bad. Above all we are fellow pros. Get well soon, Salah. The future awaits you."

The early loss of Salah was a huge blow to Liverpool's hopes of victory in Kiev, with the forward going into the match having scored 44 goals during a remarkable debut season at Anfield.

And it was Madrid who would go on to claim the trophy for a third successive year, with two glaring errors by Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius either side of Gareth Bale's wonder goal.
