Liverpool have been crowned Champions of Europe for the sixth time following their 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the finals.
Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi scored in each half of the match to break Jurgen Klopp's losing streaks in three finals.
The Reds managed to put aside their disappointing final loss in Kiev as Saido Mane won an early penalty after Moussa Sissoko was adjudged by the referee to have handled the ball.
Salah made it 1-0 to score his fifth goal of the season as he drilled in his shot past Hugo Lloris who was just a second slower to the ball in the second minute.
Substitute, Origi made it 2-0 with three minutes left on the clock as Liverpool became champions of Europe once again.
