Ronaldo’s Armband Fetches $75,000 For Treatment Of Sick Baby

By Daily sports on April 3, 2021

Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo’s armband was sold at auction for 7.5 million Serbian Dinar ($75,000) on Friday and money will be used for the medical treatment of a six-month-old Serbian boy.

The Portuguese national team captain threw his armband to the pitch to protest the referee’s decision to disallow his stoppage-time goal against Serbia in a 2022 World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

The match ended 2-2 at Belgrade’s Rajko Mitic Stadium but the 36-year-old star player’s reaction to the referee’s controversial decision may change the life of the Serbian boy.
