Ajax drops championship trophy during victory tour

BY foxsports • May 16, 2011

Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg usually has a safe pair of hands, but he managed to drop the Dutch league's trophy from the top of a bus as the team took a triumphal ride through Amsterdam.

Amateur video taken Sunday shows the trophy fall backward off the bus, apparently after colliding with overhead tram wires. It was handed back by a fan, to the applause of onlookers.

The incident resembles one from last month when Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos dropped Spain's Copa del Rey trophy, which was crushed beneath the team's bus.

Ajax sealed its 30th league championship with a 3-1 win over Twente on Sunday.
