Cristiano Ronaldo on ... his match-winning moment

I had to score. I had the feeling that I would score the winning goal, I told Zidane to leave me until last, and everything went well. It was a great night, winning my third Champions League title; it’s a dream

On another UEFA Champions League win
We’re really happy, finals are always hard. The team were great and sacrificed a lot. It’s really impressive. I knew I was going to score the winning penalty; I was confident. I'm happy, and I want to share these trophies with all the Madrid fans.

On finishing as the competition’s top scorer again
If that’s the case, then obviously I’m happy with it. Records take care of themselves. The person with the season scoring record in this competition is me, with 17 goals [in 2013/14]. And this year 16; or 17 with the penalty.

On his emotions at victory
I’m very happy. It’s been an excellent season and we’ve won the Champions League, the most difficult trophy to win. There are no words to describe the happiness that we feel: the players, the fans, their families. It’s a special moment.

Looking ahead to UEFA EURO 2016
Now I will rest for a couple of days. [Portugal coach] Fernando Santos gave me a few days off to rest, and obviously that will drive me to play a good European Championship. I won’t promise we’ll win, but we have to believe that it’s possible. We have an excellent team and a good coach. Our group is difficult, but in my eyes it’s doable. And from there on, after the first round anything can happen. (
