Real Madrid fans descended into the streets of the Spanish capital in the early hours of Sunday morning to celebrate a historic 11th European Cup win after beating local rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties. "The 11th is here," fans chanted with many expected to wait for their heroes to return from Milan with the trophy at the Plaza de Cibeles -- a traditional meeting point for Real's trophy celebrations -- in the heart of the city well after sunrise. At Real's Santiago Bernabeu stadium around 50,000 supporters followed the action from a tense final on four giant television screens.
Moderate conservative Ali Larijani retained the speakership of Iran's parliament Sunday despite major gains for reformists in February elections, benefiting from credit gained by his support for last year's nuclear deal. Several lawmakers from the reformist camp broke ranks to vote against the head of their own List of Hope, Mohammad Reza Aref, who lost by 103 votes to 173. February's election was widely seen as a referendum on last July's nuclear deal with world powers led by the United States, the signature policy of moderate President Hassan Rouhani.
