Cristiano Ronaldo has described the decision to uphold his five-match ban for pushing a referee in Real Madrid's Supercopa de Espana win against Barcelona as "incomprehensible".

The Spanish football federation (RFEF) had already rejected an appeal from Los Blancos, who then turned to the Tribunal Administrativo del Deporte but this did not find any success.

The Portuguese forward shoved official Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea after being sent off during Real's 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on August 13. The moment of madness would see him earn another four games on the sidelines - adding to the regular one-match ban for a red card.

Ronaldo took to Twitter to express his dismay against the Spanish administrative sports court's ruling.
