Ronaldinho banned after dangerous kick

Atletico Mineiro's Ronaldinho has been handed a one-match suspension by Brazil's sports tribunal after kicking out dangerously at an opponent.

The incident happened during Atletico's goalless draw with Gremio on September 23 as Ronaldinho, 32, raised his right leg and came close to catching Kleber's face.

The Brazilian forward was not punished for the challenge by the referee but, after reviewing video footage, a tribunal has decided that a one-match ban is a suitable punishment.

Atletico's lawyers appealed against the outcome, but the tribunal said on Wednesday that it would uphold the suspension, meaning Ronaldinho will not play in his side's next match against Internacional.

Ronaldinho joined Atletico Mineiro in the summer on a six-month contract. The club are second in the Brazilian league, nine points behind leaders Fluminense.
