As soon as Bayern Munich lifted the Champions League trophy after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-1, striker Mario Mandzukic, who scored his side's first goal of the night, lost his winner's medal. After going up the steps at Wembley collect their medals and trophy, Mandzukic couldn't help but jubilantly bounce around. But as soon as Bastian Schweinsteiger lifted the cup, Mandzukic's medal popped off its necklace.

The striker was too happy to notice it was gone, but Franck Ribery saw it drop down into the stands below them. Ribery alerted Mandzukic to the missing medal and Mandzukic responded with a look of surprise and confusion.

Ribery somehow managed to catch the medal before it fell down to the lower level, though. And he put it back where it belonged. Though the match included some amazing saves, that might have been the save of the day.
