Switzerland - Football administrative body, UEFA, says it is taking no action against Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos for a clash with Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius in the Champions League final.

A disciplinary rule which allows cases to be opened for serious misconduct not seen by the match officials "is not applied in this case," UEFA said in a statement.

Ramos struck Karius's head with his right elbow in an off-the-ball incident when the score was goalless early in the second-half of Madrid’s 3-1 win on Saturday.

Television replays also appeared to show Ramos being pushed toward Karius by Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.

UEFA says: "No other protest has been lodged."

Ramos angered fans of Liverpool and Egypt for his earlier challenge that ended Mohamed Salah's game due to an injured left shoulder.

Salah landed heavily on his shoulder as he tangled with Ramos around the 30 minute mark.

The Egyptian striker was withdrawn, and replaced by Adam Lallana, before heading to hospital for a scan.

It has since been revealed that the striker travelled to Spain for treatment as he hopes to be fit in time for the 2018 Soccer World Cup with Egypt.
