Ronaldo cops mega fine for 'cojones' taunt


//

Cristiano Ronaldo has been fined €20,000 (A$45,500) by UEFA for his "cojones" celebration during Juventus' last-16 Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid.

After completing his hat-trick, the Portuguese forward mimicked the celebration of Atleti coach Diego Simeone, who celebrated a goal in the first leg by grabbing his crotch.

UEFA's disciplinary panel found Ronaldo, 34, guilty of improper conduct, but he avoids a ban for his side's Champions League quarterfinal against Ajax next month.

Ronaldo's fine was the same amount imposed on Simeone for his "obscene" celebration during Atleti's 2-0 victory in Madrid.

Ronaldo's celebration came after he had scored a late penalty to secure his hat-trick and Juventus' passage through to the quarterfinals on aggregate.

The Portugal captain will face Ukraine and Serbia in the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers after receiving his first international call-up since the 2018 World Cup.
