Real Madrid's defeat to bitter rivals Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup was always likely to be a tasty affair.

And so it proved when, in the latter stages of Real's defeat, Cristiano Ronaldo was involved in a controversial moment with Atleti defender Diego Godin.

Godin appeared to have Ronaldo in a headlock but the Real Madrid forward responded with what appeared to be a punch to the head of his opponent.

You can see the incident below.

Should Ronaldo face retrospective punishment for this flashpoint? Or was he just trying to free himself from Godin's grasp? Let us know your thoughts.
