Real captain Ramos drops King's Cup under a bus

5:32 am on 23 April 2011

Real Madrid may have shown they know how to beat arch rivals Barcelona in winning Spanish football's King's Cup but they're certainly not used to celebrating.

To his horror defender Sergio Ramos dropped the trophy under a bus during a victory parade through the Spanish capital.

Ramos had the nine-kilogramme, 78-centimetre cup on top of his head but as he lowered it, it slipped from his grasp and under the bus which continued for several metres before the driver realised what had happened.

Fortunately it wasn't the actual cup but a replica.
