Cristiano Ronaldo lost his temper while on duty with Portugal recently when he was not awarded what seemed to be a perfectly legal goal – here is what has happened since to the linesman who was involved in that incident.
The 36-year-old fumed as he left the field play before the end of Portugal's 2-2 draw with Serbia in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier late last month.
Ronaldo was angered at not being awarded a goal after a last-minute effort of his crossed the line, before throwing his captain's armband to the ground and storming off the pitch.

The match official in charge of the game, Danny Makkelie, later apologised to Portugal coach Fernando Santos and his players, as revealed by Santos and confirmed by the referee himself.
There has been a new update on the incident, with Mario Dirks, the Dutch linesman who was best placed to see the ball cross the line, having been fired from Makkelie's team.
Dirks has revealed he is bitterly aggrieved to have been kicked out of the refereeing set-up.
"This is a very, very big disappointment for me so close to the European Championship," he said.
"On Wednesday, 31 March, I heard from Makkelie that he wants to continue with another assistant, because the confidence in our collaboration has gone.
"I was really hoping for more support, understanding and trust after the successful collaboration over the years."
Makkelie, meanwhile, has so far refused to reveal why Dirks was booted from his team.
