Armband Thrown Away In Disgust By Christiano Ronaldo To Be Auctioned To Save A Six-month-old Baby



The captain's armband which Cristiano Ronaldo threw to the ground in disgust after Portugal's World Cup qualifier against Serbia is being auctioned off to pay for a baby's medical treatment.


Ronaldo ripped off the armband and slammed it into the turf after seeing his last-minute goal ruled out in Portugal's 2-2 draw in Belgrade last week.


Now a charity, which is raising money for a six-month-old child from Serbia with spinal muscular atrophy to undergo surgery, has managed to obtain the armband and is auctioning it off.


According to the Associated Press, the charity got the armband from a stadium worker who picked it up after Ronaldo threw it away and stormed off before the final whistle.


The group said the armband, which is blue with the capital letter C in white, will be put on an online auction for three days.


While Ronaldo's petulant behaviour has been widely criticized, it looks as though his actions may have a positive result after all.


And any money received will be used in funding the boy's treatment.
