Portugal captain's armband Ronaldo threw to floor in strop up for auction to help pay for baby's medical treatment


The armband was picked up by a stadium worker and is now being sold to help pay for the treatment of a six-month-old baby with spinal problems

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 boy from Serbia with spinal muscular atrophy to undergo surgery, has managed to obtain the armband and is auctioning it off.
