31-year-old Ramos who captained Real Madrid to Champions League glory over Salah's Liverpool picked up the Defender of the Year trophy before rubbing the Egyptian on the shoulder.

The animosity between the two stems from an incident during the Champions League final when a rugby-styled challenge from Ramos forced Salah to leave the pitch injured early in the first-half with a shoulder injury.

The injury to Salah also heavily affected his performances at the 2018 Soccer World Cup in Russia as Egypt were one of the first teams to get knocked out of the tournament.
