UEFA to Sanction Ronaldo Over 'Provocative' Gesture

Cristiano Ronaldo will be sanctioned by UEFA over a provocative, mocking gesture he made against Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone after Juventus edged the latter's team out of the Champions League.

UEFA had previously fined Simeone $22,700 for making a rude and offensive gesture after Atletico Madrid had scored a 2-0 win over Juventus in the first leg.

When winning the last game against the Spanish club, Ronaldo celebrated by imitating Simeone’s move.

UEFA's disciplinary committee will decide on Ronaldo's charge on Thursday.
