UEFA.com sees what the UEFA Champions League final meant to some of the individuals involved.

Real Madrid

Zinédine Zidane
Has lifted the trophy as both player and coach. Is also the first French-born coach to claim Europe's top club prize (though Argentinian-born French national Helenio Herrera was a two-time European Cup winner as Internazionale coach in the 1960s).

Keylor Navas
The goalkeeper has become the first Costa Rican to appear in, and indeed win, a UEFA competition final.

Gareth Bale
Already the fifth Welshman to figure in a European Cup final, Bale is the third Welshman to have won the competition twice after Liverpool's Joey Jones (1977 and 1978) and Manchester United's Ryan Giggs (1999 and 2008).

Cristiano Ronaldo
Picked up his third UEFA Champions League title following scoring successes with United in 2008 and Madrid in 2014, but did not become the first player to score in three UEFA Champions League finals (though he scored a penalty in the shootout). He shares the record of goals in two UEFA Champions League finals with Lionel Messi (Barcelona 2009 and 2011), Raúl González (Real Madrid 2000 and 2002), Samuel Eto'o (Barcelona 2006 and 2009) and now Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid 2014 and 2016).

Instead of becoming his nation's first winner, Oblak is now the third Slovene to figure on the losing team in the decider after Srečko Katanec (Sampdoria 1992) and Zlatko Zahovič (Valencia 2001). On the wrong side with Benfica in the 2014 UEFA Europa League final, he also now has a full set of major UEFA club competition runners-up medals.

Stefan Savić
The first Montenegrin player to feature in a UEFA Champions League final since independence. Previous Montenegrin winners are Dejan Savićević (Crvena zvezda 1991 and AC Milan 1994), Slobodan Marović (Crvena zvezda 1991), Refik Šabanadžović (Crvena zvezda 1991) and Predrag Mijatović (Madrid 1998) – with Mijatović the sole Montenegrin to have scored in a European Cup final.
