Futre marvels at Casemiro's 'Michael Phelps-esque' dive
DAVID GONZALEZ DIARIO AS

Paulo Futre didn't agree with the penalty decision which referee Ignacio Iglesias Villanueva handed Real Madrid in last night's game at Levante. Cheick Doukouré took a swing at the ball in an attempt to clear it after Madrid had taken a corner and Casemiro went down clutching his leg. Television replays showed that no contact was made but the penalty was awarded regardless.

Futre wrote on his Twitter account: "As the No.1 diver I was back in the day, I can attest that Casemiro's was on a level with Michael Phelps!! Full respect!".
