| Last updated
Cristiano Ronaldo's captain's armband is being auctioned in aid of a six-month old baby requiring life-saving treatment.
Incensed by being robbed off a stoppage-time winner against Serbia on Saturday, an incensed Ronaldo was booked by the referee for his protests in the 2-2 draw.
He then angrily threw his captain's armband on the turf and stormed off the pitch before the final whistle was even blown.

What happened to the armband, we hear you ask? Well, it seems as though someone working at the stadium picked up and is now auctioning it off for a good cause.
Gavril Đurđević suffers is a six-month old baby who suffers from spinal muscular atrophy.
The treatment he requires costs a whopping €2.5 million and so this piece of memorabilia is up for auction on Limundo up for auction on Limundo, with the highest bid around £5,000 at the time of writing, with just short of two days remaining.
Pictures of the armband are featured on the page, along with a description.
Roughly translated, it reads: "The captain's armband of Cristiano Ronaldo, which he took off his hand at the end of the match with Serbia and left on the field of the 'Rajko Mitic' stadium.
"This captain's armband, which has attracted the most media attention of the world since all the captain's armband ever, can be yours if you join this charity auction and leave your offer.
"All funds from the auctioned amount are intended for the treatment of six-month-old Gavril Đurđević from Kragujevac, who suffers from spinal muscular atrophy and who needs two and a half million euros for treatment.
"The captain's armband of Cristiano Ronaldo will be handed over to the winner of the auction after submitting proof of payment of the auctioned funds to the account for the treatment of little Gabriel."
