Carlo Ancelotti joked he is a "record man" after leading Real Madrid to their 14th Champions League trophy — and his own record-breaking fourth winners' medal in the competition.

Real overcame Liverpool 1-0 on Saturday night in Paris to capture the competition. They managed spectacular comebacks throughout their run in the Champions League, and managed to beat Jurgen Klopp's side courtesy of Vinicius Junior's second-half strike to win the tournament.

The Italian was delighted by his side's victory, and told BT Sport: "I cannot believe it. I am the record man.

"It was a difficult game. We suffered a lot more in the first half, but in the second half at the end with all the games we played I think we deserved to win this competition.

"We are really happy, and I cannot say more. When I came here, I found as usual a fantastic squad with a lot of quality and strong mental character.

"We passed through really difficult games, the supporters helped us a lot, I am so happy."

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois starred, making a series of brilliant saves and Ancelotti hailed his performance, adding: "Unbelievable. I cannot believe it."

Ancelotti has won the Champions League twice with AC Milan and now twice with Real to become the most successful manager in the competition's history.
