Ronaldo fined $22,000 by UEFA for celebration gesture

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates at the end of the match between Juventus and Atletico Madrid.

The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB), UEFA's disciplinary arm, made its decision known on the soccer body's website on Thursday afternoon, and it found the five-time Balloon d'Or victor guilty of breaking the law as stated in Art. 11 (2) (b) and 11 (2) (d) of the UEFA disciplinary regulations.

Ronaldo celebrated the feat with a groin-thrusting celebration, apparently in response to Atleti boss Diego Simeone grabbing his crotch when his team took control of the first fixture between the teams at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The former vice president and the Vermont democratic socialist also lead in favorability among Democrat primary voters. Public opinion polls have him as an early favorite, with almost every measure of early support showing him leading.

There had been some suggestions beforehand that Ronaldo's punishment would be more severe as his celebration was directed at opposition fans, while Simeone's was aimed at his own side's supporters.

The celebration came after Ronaldo had netted his hat-trick and sealed an unlikely comeback to send the Italian club into the quarter-finals, where they will face Ajax.

Ronaldo was charged with "Improper conduct of player Cristiano Ronaldo - Art. 11 (2) (b) and Art. 11 (2) (d) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations".
