Gareth Bale scored two goals – including a stunning overhead kick –  as Real Madrid beat Liverpool to win the Champions League for the third year in a row.

A bizarre Loris Karius mistake allowed Karim Benzema to score the opener early in the second half but Liverpool, who lost PFA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah to a shoulder injury in the first half, responded immediately when Sadio Mane stabbed in from close range.

However, just three minutes after coming on as a substitute, Bale restored Real’s lead with arguably one the best goals ever seen in a Champions League final, connecting superbly with Marcelo’s defected cross.

Mane hit the post soon after but Liverpool’s hopes of a sixth European Cup were ended when Karius made another costly mistake, this time failing to get any direction on his attempt to push away Bale's fierce strike, with the ball squirming into the net.

Liverpool famously fought back from 3-0 down against AC Milan to win the 2005 Champions League but there was to be no heroic fight back this time as Real Madrid claimed their 13th European Cup. (BBC)
