Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has jokingly blamed fans after the Copa del Rey became the Copa del Ruin when it was crushed to pieces by a bus.
The Spain international was celebrating Madrid's 1-0 cup final win over Barcelona with the rest of the team as their open-top bus travelled through the Spanish capital.
But he lost grip, the trophy fell under the bus, and the inevitable happened as the driver was unable to stop in time.
However, Ramos has seen the funny side.
He said on his twitter account: "What happened with the cup was a misunderstanding. I did not drop it, it jumped when it saw all the excited Madrid fans."
Luckily for him, and Madrid, the cup makers confirmed a replica trophy has been made.
Federico Alegre, who owns the jewellers who make the cup, said there were no problems.
"Since 05:30 this morning [Thursday] Real Madrid have a trophy in perfect condition which they can show the fans," he told EFE TV.
"There is always a plan B for these cases."
