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.
