Cristiano Ronaldo has been awarded the UEFA Champions League goal of the Season, beating Real Madrid teammate Gareth Bale's acrobatic strike in the final against Liverpool on Saturday.
Ronaldo, 33, scored a sensational bicycle goal against Juventus in the quarter-finals of the competition that displayed incredible technique and athleticism to execute.
While Bale scored a similar strike in the final, to put Real in the lead against the Reds, the UEFA technical panel opted for Ronaldo's effort.
