A lot of people in the world despise Cristiano Ronaldo. I don’t blame soccer fans for hating on Roanldo — he flops, he whines, and he scores goals against their favorite teams. Tonight though, my opinion of the man has changed a bit. During Real Madrid’s match with Chelsea, an awesome a crazed Madrid fan ran onto the pitch just so he could feel Ronaldo’s sweaty embrace. There are a lot of people who think that pitch invaders or streakers are just idiots, but Ronaldo has obviously touched this person in a special way and the two shared a beautiful moment. Kudos to Ronaldo for the way he handled the whole situation. The two were hugging for a pretty long time all things considered and Ronaldo showed this dude the attention he desperately was seeking. I’m proud of the Portuguese star tonight. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
