MADRID (AP) – Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for three Spanish league games for receiving a red card and then making a mocking gesture toward the match officials during a game at Athletic Bilbao.
The Portuguese forward was given a straight red for swiping his hand across the face of Bilbao’s Carlos Gurpegi following a shove from his opponent during Sunday’s 1-1 league tie.
The league’s disciplinary committee assessed Ronaldo a one-game ban for the red card and two more for his mocking gesture as he left the field.
Ronaldo will miss games against Villarreal, Getafe, and Elche.
Ronaldo, however, is available to play in the Copa del Rey semi-final against Atletico Madrid today.
