Olympique Lyonnais have won the UEFA Women's Champions League for the third successive season after beating VfL Wolfsburg 4-1 after extra time in the Final in Kiev.
It is the fifth time in all that the French side have been crowned European Champions and England full back Lucy Bronze becomes the first British player to pick up a winner's medal since Arsenal's success in 2007, and the first to do so with an overseas team.
In front of 14,237 in Kiev, Lyon had the better of things during normal time and should have won the game when a header from Amandine Henry clearly looked to have crossed the line but with no goal line technology available, no goal was awarded.
Wolfsburg went ahead three minutes into extra time through a deflected shot from Danish star Pernille Harder but the sending off of Alexandra Popp for a second bookable offence proved to be the turning point of the game. Lyon took full advantage, Henry levelling the scores before Eugenie Le Sommer and Ada Hegerberg both converted crosses from former Liverpool winger Shanice van de Sanden.
The win - which stretched Lyon's unbeaten run to 41 matches in all competitions - was crowned four minutes from time when Camille Abily marked her last game for the club by scoring the fourth.
