Copa Del Ray Trophy falls under the bus
Breaking News: In celebration, the sacred Copa Del Rey trophy fell under the bus and was crushed, fumbled at the hands of Sergio Ramos early this morning. The celebration was huge for Real Madrid breaking an eighteen year drought. Even though, dropping the Cup is as sacred as sin in Spain, the Cup will be re-built and brought back home to Valencia, Madrid to the club museum. Watch the video! Read the excerpt, courtesy ESPN:
“The cup fell, it fell,” Ramos said, according to Europa Press agency. “But the cup is OK.”
Later, the Spain defender made light of the incident on Twitter.
“The whole thing about the cup was a misunderstanding, it didn’t fall … it jumped off when it reached Cibeles [the fountain in Madrid where the team celebrates its titles] and saw so many Madrid fans,” Ramos tweeted.
“Hahahaha … but don’t worry … have a good day.”
The club said Thursday that the trophy will be repaired.
“It is not in good shape, evidently, it was run over by a bus,” Madrid spokeswoman Marta Santisteban told The Associated Press.“It has to be fixed.”
