Luka Modric opened scoring in the 14th minute, before Marcos Llorente and Sergio Ramos added further goals in the second half.

Tsukasa Shiotani’s goal was only a consolation for the home side.

The Spanish giants have now won a record four Club World Cup titles, pulling one clear of arch-rivals Barcelona, who were in LaLiga action on Saturday.

“These players deserve it. They’re here after working very hard and winning many trophies.

“Today they added a finishing touch with the third consecutive Club World Cup, which I think is a great feat for the club, of course for Real Madrid and this group of players in particular,” Real coach Santiago Solari said.
