Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon says winning the title is the "greatest moment of my career".
"It's pointless saying that error didn't weigh on me or leave a mark. More than anything else, I was afraid I'd be responsible for someone getting tense or afraid in the final sprint. This is why I had a very bad time the last three days.
"They were the three most horrible days of my sporting existence. I was afraid I had thrown away the title with my own mistake. I felt a great sense of responsibility.
"So tonight, without doubt after the World Cup, this is the greatest joy of my sporting life. Finally it can give a sense to the phrase that hard work pays off. I always thought it was 20 per cent true and 80 per cent rhetoric, but now I think it's 80 per cent true."
