WATCH: Juventus hero Ronaldo mocks Simeone with own 'cojones' celebration

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed the last laugh on Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone after his hat-trick last night.

When Jose Maria Gimenez opened the scoring in the first leg for the La Liga side at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, Simeone turned to the stands and grabbed his groin.

After the game and taking a 2-0 lead into tonight's second leg in Turin, Simeone said the gesture was to “show our fans we have cojones."

But it was Juve's talisman who had the last laugh scoring an incredible hat-trick to sink the Spaniards.

And at the final whistle amidst the wild celebrations, the 34-year-old found a moment to mimic Simeone's “cojones" goal celebration to the delight of the Turin faithful.
