MADRID, April 21, – Spain's most treasured football trophy, the King's Cup, slipped from the hands of a Real Madrid player Thursday, fell under the team bus and was reportedly crushed into pieces.
But he lost his grip and the Cup, which Real Madrid got their hands on just hours earlier for the first time since 1993 after a 1-0 victory over Barcelona, fell in front of the bus.
The team bus then ran over the silver trophy before stopping.
Police rushed to retrieve the Cup and gave it to the bus driver but it was not displayed to the public again.
Emergency services workers picked up at least 10 pieces of the trophy, news radio Cadena Ser reported.
"It fell, it fell, it’s fine, it’s fine," Ramos told reporters when asked about the slip.
