Fans injured after firecracker sparks panic in Turin

AFP reporters at the scene said chaotic scenes ensued ten minutes before the end of the match, apparently triggered by fireworks being let off and one or more people shouting that a bomb had gone off.

Several fans were seen been treated by medics for cuts and other injuries sustained in the near-stampede.

Hundreds of people watching the match on giant TV screens ran in a near-stampede from the centre of the piazza.

Real defeated Juventus 4-1 to win the Champions League for the 12th time. Three, including a young boy who suffered cranial and thoracic trauma, were in serious condition, officials said.

It is believed up to 30 people were injured after a oud noise was heard nearby.

"I have got blood on me from the people who fell on top of me, people were screaming, jumping over each other", he told AFPTV.

Juventus fans stand near a Carabinieri auto, Italian paramilitary police, as they leave San Carlo's square at the end of the Champions League final soccer match between Juventus and Real Madrid, in Turin, Italy, Saturday, June 3, 2017.

It has also been reported that a railing at the top of a stairwell leading to an underground auto park gave way, causing people to run to safety.

Marco Gulini said he was pushed to the ground by the surging crowd. "Everyone just trampled over me". I got separated from all my friends.

A fan named Filippo said that he had taken refuge in a restaurant in a neighbouring square. "With everything that is going on nowadays, it's only to be expected".
