Not surprisingly, club staff were quick on the scene, treating Ronaldo for what looked like a thigh injury, before the 31-year-old left the training session early.

However, despite the incident (which may have been nothing more than a dead leg), Ronaldo was keen to play down any question marks over his involvement in the final, telling reporters that he was fine.
Still, fans of Los Merengues will no doubt be worried over the fitness of their star man ahead of the biggest game of the season.
