Arda Turan shaves his head to celebrate Atletico triumph

World of Sport

Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan decided to shave his head after his side's 2-1 win over local rivals Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey final.

Turkey international Turan had promised to shave his head before the match if his side could overcome the odds to upset Jose Mourinho's men.

Joao Miranda thumped home an extra-time winner as Atletico Madrid secured a 2-1 win over Real Madrid to claim Copa Del Rey glory in a fiery final that saw both Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo sent off.

The Brazilian defender headed in a 99th-minute cross to clinch a first victory over Los Blancos since 1999 and the 10th domestic cup success in their history.

Mourinho's side had looked on course to maintain their hoodoo over their neighbours when Ronaldo powered home a 14th-minute corner.

However, Diego Costa restored parity just before half time when he fired home a 20-yard shot following a fine turn and pass from Radamel Falcao.

And when the winner flew in, the club's triumph became Arda's loss, as he was resigned to joining the likes of Miranda in the legions of the bald-headed.
