Video: Zinedine Zidane Has the Best Response to Gareth Bale’s Ridiculous Overhead Kick

Zinedine Zidane had the best response to Gareth Bale‘s ridiculous overhead kick tonight.

A boring first half was followed up with a hugely entertaining second period in Kiev for the Champions League Final, with fans treated to four goals after getting no goals before half time.

The first came through a shocking Loris Karius mistake, with the Liverpool goalkeeper throwing the ball off the foot of Karim Benzema and into the net.

Sadio Mane equalised shortly after, but second half substitute changed the game with two goals – and the first was a quite ridiculous overhead kick.

We were all in disbelief as the Welshman acrobatically fired beyond Karis – and Zidane’s reaction summed up exactly what we were all thinking:

Bale’s second goal wasn’t quite as impressive – with Karius spilling a long shot into the net.

Real Madrid won the game 3-1 and secured their third Champions League trophy on the trot and their place in history.
