Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has been cautioned by the police after angrily smashing an autistic boy’s phone to the floor.
The incident happened after the Red Devils lost 1-0 at Everton last season.
Ronaldo appeared to hit Jacob Harding’s hand as he left the pitch moments after the defeat.
He later apologised to the 14-year-old, but was interviewed by police under caution in relation to an alleged assault and criminal damage.
A statement by Merseyside Police on Wednesday, said: “We can confirm that a 37-year-old man voluntarily attended and was interviewed under caution in relation to an allegation of assault and criminal damage. The allegation relates to an incident following the Everton v Manchester United football match at Goodison Park on Saturday 9 April.
“The matter has been dealt with by way of conditional caution. The matter has now concluded.”
It is understood the 37-year-old has agreed to pay compensation to Harding.
