The event happened to a young fan with autism and dyspraxia following Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park last season.

The FA released a statement explaining Ronaldo was charged with “improper and/or violent” conduct, for which he has been served with a two-game suspension along with his hefty fine.

“The forward admitted that his conduct after the final whistle of the Premier League game between Manchester United FC and Everton FC on Saturday 9 April 2022 was improper.

An independent Regulatory Commission found that his conduct was both improper and violent during a subsequent hearing, and imposed these sanctions.

Ronaldo’s punishment comes in what has been a turbulent few days for the Portugal international.
