Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has been charged by UEFA for his Champions League final meltdown.

Simeone stormed on to the field in the wake of Real Madrid's fourth goal in Lisbon on Saturday night, angry with France defender Raphael Varane.

The Real player had kicked the ball towards Simeone as he walked back after Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty made it 4-1 and, after whacking it back at him, Simeone stormed on the field and had to be restrained as he went for the player.

He will be dealt with, UEFA confirmed on its website, on July 17.
