Cristiano Ronaldo has failed in his bid to appeal his five-match ban for pushing a referee after being sent off for two bookings in the Supercopa de Espana.
The Portugal captain was handed a one-match ban for the 10th red card of his career in the 3-1 first-leg victory against Barcelona, and a further four-game suspension for shoving Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea in protest.
After last week seeing his ban upheld by the Spanish Football Federation, Real Madrid and Ronaldo took their case to Spain's administrative sports court (TAD).
However, the court released a statement on Tuesday which read: "TAD has rejected the appeal presented by Real Madrid against the five-match ban."
Following the ruling, Ronaldo posted an image on Instagram captioned: "From injustice to injustice, they will never bring me down."
