Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid in penalties at Milan to lift their 11th Champions League trophy with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the winning spot kick. However, it was Pepe who stole the show on social media with his acting skills and dramatics. Here are some of the best tweets on the match.
Pepe was on a 'roll' tonight...
Apparently Richard Gere has asked Pepe for some acting tips. #uclfinal— Jack Carroll (@fatjacko) May 28, 2016
Just when you thought it could not get any worse..
Of course Pepe has a selfie stick. Of course he does.— Dan L (@danlevy1) May 28, 2016

Did not happen though...
If there is a God, Pepe's penalty will hit the bar & come back and smash him straight in the face. #uclfinal— Coral (@Coral) May 28, 2016
I think Pepe watches it with a grin while murdering his cat...
Do you think footballers watch the highlights and cringe at themselves.— Iain O'Brien (@iainobrien) May 28, 2016
I'm looking very specifically at you Pepe.
Praises poured in from all directions..

The other side of the story..
Last minute of extra time in 1974. Last minute of normal time in 2014. Penalties in 2016. Got to feel sorry for Atletico Madrid.— Luca Cetta (@l_cetta) May 28, 2016
Its a shame that the world's best manager has yet to win the UCL.— Amlan (@TheSaintKopite) May 28, 2016
