Mo Salah and Divock Origi goals hand Liverpool sixth European crown

Liverpool were crowned European champions for the sixth time as goals from Mo Salah and Divock Origi gave them a 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid.

Liverpool were given a helping hand after just 22 seconds when Sadio Mane’s ball brushed Moussa Sissoko’s arm at close range, prompting Slovenian referee Damir Skomina to point to the spot for Salah to convert down the middle.

It was an otherwise turgid affair in sweltering conditions in the Spanish capital, until sub Origi, the two-goal hero in Liverpool’s unforgettable semi-final win over Barcelona, struck a pinpoint low effort into the far corner from the left of the box.

After finishing second to Manchester City in the Premier League by just a point, Jurgen Klopp finally earned his first trophy at Liverpool in his fourth final, while Mauricio Pochettino still waits for his first piece of silverware at Spurs.
