​Real Madrid blow as Ronaldo banned for FIVE games over ref push

Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for five games after he was sent off in Real Madrid's 3-1 win against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup first leg on Sunday.

He was given a one-match ban for being shown two yellow cards at the Nou Camp, one for taking off his shirt to celebrate and another for a dive.

A further four games were added for pushing the referee in the back after he had been sent off.

He will miss Wednesday's second leg.
