Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has unsurprisingly been involved in some controversy despite football across Europe being suspended.
Football in the nation has been suspended indefinitely in the midst of a state of emergency in Spain, confining players to their own homes as social distancing is enforced.
However, the Madrid captain found himself involved with some light-hearted social media conversation with Dutch giants Ajax, who had a dig at the Spain international.
Ajax posted a photo of their goal celebration during their famous 4-1 win in the Spanish capital in the Champions League Round of 16 last year, with Ramos confined to the stands due to suspension – with an image from the game seeing him in a similar pose in the executive box.

Ramos did hit back with a jibe of his own, responding with a collage of four photos showing him celebrating each of his four Champions League titles.

Ramos has won a remarkable 21 trophies in the Spanish capital including four La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns – including in 2014, when he scored his most famous goal. Deep into stoppage time and with Carlo Ancelotti’s side trailing 1-0 to Atletico de Madrid, Ramos scored a towering header from a corner to bring the game into extra-time and his side subsequently won 4-1.
The defender has also won a multitude of personal awards alongside three major trophies for Spain, including the 2010 World Cup.
