Cristiano Ronaldo five-match ban upheld

Cristiano Ronaldo has reacted furiously to his five-game ban for pushing a referee being upheld by Spain's administrative sports court. Spanish media reports said Madrid appealed Ronaldo's second yellow card, when the Portugal forward was booked for diving.

In typical fashion, Ronaldo took to Instagram to criticise the decision.

In a moment of frustration, Ronaldo pushed the referee after the red card was brandished, and was handed the stern punishment as a result, which he has tried to appeal in court.

The Portuguese forward shoved official Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea after being sent off during Real's 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on August 13. Ronaldo will serve the full suspension, which will include missing games against Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad.

The suspension does not affect his participation in Wednesday's match at the Bernabeu however, and Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane told RMTV that the game was an opportunity for Ronaldo and other players who have not featured so much recently to improve their match fitness. "As always I will be back stronger".

The 32-year-old was suspended for the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup, and also missed Real's La Liga opener against Deportivo La Coruna. "Thanks to those who have supported me".
