UEFA condemns the harassment suffered by Michael Oliver and his wife

One of the most unsavoury aspects of the Champions League quarterfinal second leg between Real Madrid and Juventus, has been the treatment of referee Michael Oliver and his wife, something that UEFA has condemned.

The harassment suffered by the pair, after the English official gave Real a penalty on Wednesday, has bordered on the psychopathic.

"We are in contact with them to offer our support and we are fully confident that the competent authorities will take action against people who have behaved inappropriately inside and outside social networks," a UEFA spokesperson told BBC Sport.

"We strongly condemn their actions."

British police opened an investigation after Lucy Oliver also received numerous insults via Twitter, reports the BBC.

Threatening text messages were even sent to her mobile phone number after it was made public on social networks once the game had ended.
