Gallery: Real Madrid Finally Lift La Liga Trophy
Over three months after winning the Spanish league title last season, Real Madrid’s stars around Cristiano Ronaldo finally lifted the La Liga trophy on Sunday. Here are the best images of their celebrations.

Los Blancos played their final La Liga game of the 2016/17 campaign at Malaga on 21 May, but in Spain the league trophy will not be handed out at away grounds.
Even players such as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, who had claimed their first La Liga title with Real, were seemingly confused back in May. During their celebrations Real had to use a small replica cup.
Last night, Real played their first home game of the new campaign and finally received their well-deserved trophy.
Suspended captain Sergio Ramos and vice-captain Marcelo lifted the award, while Ronaldo, who was also still banned, joined them on the field where the team also presented the UEFA Super Cup and UEFA Champions League trophies to their fans.
The game itself was a tricky affair for Zinedine Zidane’s side, who were wasteful and in the end had to be content with a draw after Marco Asensio equalised in the 83rd minute.
