FIFA will not discipline Cristiano Ronaldo for spitting as he left the field after Portugal's second-round loss against Spain.

FIFA says its disciplinary committee found no grounds to open a case against the Portugal captain.

Ronaldo was being followed by a television cameraman filming him after the final whistle of his team's 1-0 defeat in Cape Town on Tuesday.

The former FIFA world player of the year appeared to stare into the lens then spit near the camera operator's feet.

FIFA's disciplinary panel had the option to issue a warning, fine or impose a match suspension.
