Vicente del Bosque is the only football manager in the world to have won the World Cup, European Championship and Champions League. His players were in the limelight after their accomplished defeat of Italy last Sunday but Vicente del Bosque's achievement was also exceptional. His perfection of the tiki-taka, pass-and-move, technique has made the centre-forward redundant.

After Spain's victory he remembeed the losers: “Italy just had no luck.
Everything went our way. They had one player fewer for the final half hour and one day less to prepare.” A sportsman, a gentleman -- and a Marques since King Juan Carlos conferred the title on him last year.
