Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned by Spanish authorities for five games after pushing the referee in the back, after he was shown a second yellow for diving in last night's El Clasico.

He has received a one game ban for his second yellow and red card and a four game suspension for pushing the referee, he has also been fined €3,805 for his actions.

Although the suspension might be reduced to a three game ban as the second yellow that the Portuguese winger received looked to be harsh as replays show that there was contact between him and Samuel Umtiti, even if that contact was minimal.

If the ban is not reduced, he will miss the opening four league fixtures of the Real's season against Deportivo, Valencia, Levante and Real Betis but he will be available to play in the Champions League
