Real Madrid were surprise losers to their neighbours Atletico in the Copa Del Rey final last night, surely meaning that Jose Mourinho will leave the Bernabeu without winning a trophy during his last season.

The final was as eventful as you would expect, with Atletico winning the game 2-1 in extra time after a 90 minutes in which Real hit the woodwork on several occasions.

The game’s principal talking point was the sending off of Cristiano Ronaldo, however.

Whilst it is possible to declare that it was a naughty kick out by the Portuguese forward, as the GIF shows, the fact that Gabi lands on his feet before physically throwing himself forward into a dive does bring a little bit of vomit to the mouth.

So, dive, red card or both?
