Ronaldo got into a squabble with Atletico midfielder Koke.

Unfortunately, homophobia and anti-gay vernacular on the world professional sports stage isn't anything new, and neither is soccer being one of the worst offenders.

On Sunday, Cristiana Ronaldo got into a squabble with Atletico midfielder Koke after he rolled off Koke's back while heading the ball.

The Sun reports:

Television viewers even claimed that the Bernabeau icon threw a punch at the Atleti ace in the incident.

And, according to Cadena Cope, the fuse was lit when Koke called Ronaldo a 'faggot.'

To which the three-time Ballon d'Or winner allegedly replied: "A faggot, yes. But a rich one, bastard."

The Spanish radio station claims to have heard the conversation Ronaldo, 31, had with team-mates in the visitor's changing room after the game.

Watch the altercation below.
