The Portuguese has been given one game for the initial red card and four more for the subsequent physical altercation. A €3005 (£2727) fine has been added on top of the suspension.

Any appeal will have to wait until Wednesday, the day of the second leg of the Super Copa at the Bernabeu, because of a public holiday on Tuesday.

Portugal captain Ronaldo received two bookings in the space of three minutes, with the second coming for a dive which the referee took exception to.

Frustrated with the decision, Ronaldo turned round to protest to the referee, pushing the official in the back before storming off to the sidelines.

Referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea did not seem fazed by the incident but he did mention it in his report and Ronaldo now faces further action.

“Once the red card was shown, the player pushed me slightly in a sign of disagreement,” Bengoetxea wrote in his report.
