ZENIT CAPTAIN IVANOVIC DROPS AND BREAKS THE RUSSIAN CUP DURING CELEBRATION.

Russian Premier League champions Zenit sealed the domestic double with a late win over underdogs Khimki in the Russian Cup Final on Saturday, only to drop the trophy within minutes of receiving it at the Ekaterinburg Arena.

Three weeks after wildly celebrating by dousing each other in champagne in their locker room after winning the Russian Premier League, Zenit tasted glory again with a late win over newly-promoted Khimki that sealed their first league and cup triumph in a season since 2010.

Players and staff including matchwinner and Russia captain Artem Dzyuba leapt on a podium under swirls of confetti as they enjoyed their narrow win, knocking off part of the gleaming silver trophy in an act of clumsiness that club captain and former Chelsea star Branislav Ivanovic might want to avoid watching again.
