Ronaldo banned after making obscene

Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for one match after appearing to make an obscene gesture following Al Nassr’s 3-2 win over Al Shabab.

After the final whistle, videos posted on social media showed the five-time Ballon d’Or winner cupping his ear and repeatedly thrusting his hand forward near his pelvis, seemingly aimed at rival Al Shabab supporters.

In the background, chants of “Messi” could be heard, referring to Ronaldo’s longstanding football rival from Argentina.

While the incident was not captured by television cameras, criticism of the 39-year-old Portugal striker was swift.

The Disciplinary and Ethics Committee of the Saudi Football Federation (SAFF) announced the one-match ban on Wednesday evening.

Al Nassr’s next match is on Thursday but they will be without Ronaldo, who is the top scorer in the Saudi Pro League with 22 goals.
