An Atletico statement, via goal.com, read:

The posterior part of the medical tests that he underwent confirm that Javier Manquillo suffers whiplash. A neurological examination came out normal and he has been admitted to the hospital for observations.

It was a mixed night for Ronaldo, whose Real team progressed to the final but he was also hit on the head by a lighter thrown from the crowd.
