Real Madrid drops trophy under team bus

Spain's Real Madrid soccer team waited 18 years to win back the Copa Del Rey trophy, but during their victory parade, someone dropped the trophy under the team bus.

Fans watched in horror as the bus's front wheel rolled over the cup.

The 33-pound cup slipped from the hands of Madrid defender Sergio Ramos while atop the team bus during celebrations Thursday morning in the capital.

Emergency service workers gathered up the broken pieces and returned them to the bus. The trophy did not reappear at the club's traditional celebration spot at the Plaza de Cibeles in central Madrid.

The trophy will be repaired, and once it's put back together, it will go in the team's trophy case.
