Ronaldo fined by Uefa of goal celebation

Uefa fined Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo  20,000 euros (about CAD$30,400) for a goal celebration in the win over Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The 34-year-old appeared to mimic Atletico boss Diego Simeone, who turned to fans and grabbed his crotch during his side’s 2-0 first-leg victory.

Ronaldo made the gesture when completing his hat-trick in the return leg as Juventus won 3-0.

Simeone was fined £17,000 for the act.

Juventus have been drawn to play Dutch side Ajax in the quarter-finals.
