The captain’s armband that Cristiano Ronaldo flung to the ground in disgust after Portugal were controversially denied a late winner at the weekend in the World Cup qualifier against Serbia was put on auction in a bid to help a sick child. One of the stewards at the stadium picked it up and immediately contacted a regional sports channel with the idea of auctioning it for charity. The man, who requested anonymity, told AFP he suggested raising funds required to treat a six-month-old baby who is suffering from a rare disease.
