Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino has shown off the injuries he sustained following his collision with Cristiano Ronaldo during their opening Serie A game against Juventus.

Chievo veteran Sorrentino's head connected with Ronaldo's thigh as he came out to meet a cross in the closing minutes of the league opener at Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi.

Sorrentino, 39, was briefly knocked out and there were chaotic scenes as he was treated on the pitch while Juventus players celebrated the initial awarding of the goal.

"THANK YOU for all your messages of affection and respect", Sorrentino posted on Twitter. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840.

Novak Djokovic beats Roger Federer for first Cincinnati title
Djokovic, who came up empty in five prior Cincinnati finals, defeated seven-time victor Roger Federer 6-4, 6-4 in the final. But it began to unravel as the Swiss double-faulted to yield a break point, dropping serve as Djokovic moved ahead 4-3.

"We are a fantastic squad and yesterday we had a brush with greatness: meanwhile, CR7 didn't so much brush me as get a bullseye!"

Giorgio Chiellini and Paulo Dybala celebrating a goal (which was eventually disallowed) whilst Chievo's keeper was on the ground receiving treatment didn't go down well.

Dybala responded to a comment on his Instagram saying: "You're right!"

Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus career began with a victory this weekend, as the Bianconeri beat Chievo 3-2 thanks for a last minute victor from super sub Federico Bernadeschi.
