Champions' football trophy run over by bus in Madrid

Chaotic celebrations after Real Madrid won the Copa del Rey fell a little flat when the prized trophy was dropped from the top of the ceremonial open-top bus.

One of the players, Sergio Ramos, managed to lose his grip on the cup after holding it above his head.

It ended up under the wheels of the double-decker bus before being retrieved by police on the ground, who returned it to the bus driver.

Thousands of euphoric fans watched the trophy fall after packing into the Spanish capital to welcome the champions home.
