Buffon was the one who took home Cristiano Ronaldo's shirt


Cristiano Ronaldo's brace in Turin may have gone some way to ending Gianluigi Buffon's last shot at winning the Champions League, yet the Italian stopper had a lengthy embrace with the forward at the full-time whistle and even took his shirt.

After the final whistle, the World Cup winner embraced every single Los Blancos player, but he saved the longest hug for Ronaldo, his nemesis for the evening.

Despite the Portuguese forward all but crushing Buffon's dreams, he respects how talented a footballer he is and he recognises the unique nature of Real Madrid's star.

Buffon intimated to MARCA on the eve of the match that he had a dream of winning the Champions League in his last season as a professional, which will now be incredibly difficult to achieve with the Turin club heading to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu 3-0 down and without the suspended Paulo Dybala.
