Ramos drops Copa Del Rey

Incredible scenes in Madrid last night as the Copa del Rey, Spain's version of the FA Cup, was crushed under the wheels of Real Madrid's team bus.

Defender Sergio Ramos dropped the illustrious trophy from the top deck of an open top bus during celebrations.

Madrid have been waiting 18 years to win the cup which was 'recovered' by Spanish cops who, in what was surely a comedy scene to behold, returned the sorry looking thing to the driver.

Despite the incident, which took place at gone 4am local time, the team carried on regardless with the traditional crowning of the Cibeles statue with Real Madrid's bandana by the team's captain Iker Casillas (pictured).

Real Madrid won the Copa del Rey after beating Barcelona with an extra-time goal from Cristiano Ronaldo. Our condolences go out to the family of the Copa Del Rey.
