Copa del Rey: Ronaldo hit by lighter after firing brace

Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice from the penalty spot and was later hit on the head by a lighter thrown from the crowd as Real Madrid sealed their place in the Copa del Rey final with a 2-0 win (5-0 on aggregate) over holders Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo celebrates after scoring 

Any chance of Atletico recovering from their 0-3 defeat last week was extinguished after just seven minutes when Ronaldo opened the scoring after being upended by Manquillo. The Portuguese star doubled his tally nine minutes later from another penalty as this time Gareth Bale was felled by Emiliano Insua.

Ronaldo’s eventful evening continued as, moments after being booked for a clash with Manquillo, he was then hit by a lighter thrown by the Atletico fans as the players headed to the dressing rooms at half-time.

The Ballon d’Or winner was however fit to continue in the second-half before being substituted late on.
