Sergio Ramos tweets video showing what really happened with him and Raheem Sterling
It was alleged that Sergio Ramos stamped on Raheem Sterling during England's win over Spain on Monday night
Sterling, who scored twice in the 3-2 victory in Seville, was seen writhing on the floor at one point in the second half. Though difficult to see what had happened from the original footage, some on social media pointed out that Ramos, who had been in close proximity at the time, had stamped on the Manchester City forward.

Now though, the 32-year-old has moved to clarify what really went on.
A tweet from the Real Madrid and Spain captain features video footage showing a different camera angle. This clearly shows that he in fact steps over Sterling, and that very little contact - if any at all - is made between him and the former Liverpool player.

Seconds before, Sterling had been brought to the ground on the edge of the area by a challenge from one of Ramos' teammates. Presumably, him clutching his left leg is a reaction to that tackle and nothing to do with Ramos.
'Nada más que decir,' his tweet reads - 'Nothing else to say'.
The defender had an eventful night on the return to his hometown - clattered in the early minutes by a tackle from Tottenham's Eric Dier and scoring the final goal of the game right on the full-time whistle.
