Everyone is loving Cristiano Ronaldo’s reaction when he saw Gigi Buffon after the final whistle

Legendary Juventus keeper was shown a straight red card for his furious reaction towards referee Michael Oliver after awarded Real Madrid a last-gasp penalty

And breathe.

Another dramatic night of Champions League reached a peak when Real Madrid were awarded an injury-time penalty after Juventus had gone 3-0 up at the Bernabeu.

Cristiano Ronaldo converted the spot-kick with typical precision to ensure Real Madrid’s progression to the semi-finals.

Gigi Buffon was sent off for harassing referee Michael Oliver following the controversial decision and he continued the assault with a verbal barrage after the game.

However, there was no ill-feeling between Ronaldo and Juventus’ legendary keeper.

The Portuguese superstar interrupted an interview Buffon was giving in the mixed zone to pay his respects in the form of a kiss and cuddle.

40-year-old Buffon has most likely played his last Champions League game, having never won the competition despite participating in three finals.

While some will say it’s easy to be magnanimous in victory, Ronaldo’s classy reaction is capable of warming the stoniest of hearts.

After the game, Buffon said of Oliver: “Clearly you cannot have a heart in your chest, but a bag of rubbish.

“If you can’t handle the pressure and have the courage to make a decision, then you should just sit in the stands and eat your crisps.

“If you have the cynicism to award a penalty like that, you are not a man, you are an animal.

“We had done something which seemed impossible. A pity it ended like this, unjustly. It was one tenth of a penalty.”
