Bayern Munich overcame Paris St-Germain in a tightly contested UEFA Champions League final to claim the crown for the sixth time, with Kingsley Coman.
France international Kingsley Coman appeared at the back post to head home in the 59th minute, completing a sweeping move from Bayern Munich.
Coman’s strike secured a treble for the Germans and punished Paris Saint-Germain’s wastefulness in the first half as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both failed to beat Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer from close range.

Paris Saint-Germain were playing in their first European Cup final after billions of euros of investment from the Qatar royal family but they fell short on the final step to glory.
It was not the classic or the goal-feast that many had anticipated but it was a high-tempo battle and in the end, Bayern just about deserved to emerge victorious.
The German outfit claimed Europe’s elite club trophy by winning every game in the Champions League this season. The victory also completed a treble of trophies for Hansi Flick’s side after they also won the Bundesliga and the German Cup.
Bayern Munich coach opted to start with Kingsley Coman instead of Ivan Perisic on the left flank and it was an inspired decision.
Jerome Boateng was deemed fit to start in the Bayern Munich central defence, having recovered from a knock picked up in the semi-final win over Olympique Lyonnais.
PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas returned to their starting lineup having recovered from injury.
