Cristiano Ronaldo is facing disciplinary action for his celebration after one of the three goals he scored in last week’s 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

UEFA said the Portugal international would face a hearing on Thursday for “improper conduct” during the last-16 second leg match.

After the goal Ronaldo thrust his crotch and gestured, in a similar fashion to Atletico coach Diego Simeone, who celebrated his team’s opening goal in the first leg by turning to the crowd and putting his hands on his trousers.
