Cristiano Ronaldo has been fined 20,000 euros by UEFA for his celebration during Juventus last-16 Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid.

The 34-year-old fired his side into the quarter-finals with a hat-trick in the second leg in Turin, overturning Atleticos 2-0 victory from the first leg.

Ronaldo followed one of his goals by copying Atletico manager Diego Simeones crotch-grabbing celebration from the first leg, for which the latter was given a £17,000 fine.
