There are few things you’d want to get in the way of less than a booming, signature free-kick from Cristiano Ronaldo. After all, FIFA ‘13 rates Ronaldo’s shot power at a whopping 94, and FIFA ratings never lie.

You could also just ask Charlie Silverwood, an 11-year-old Bournemouth fan. The young boy broke his wrist in two places after a Ronaldo rocket zoomed past the net and hit him in the stands during Real Madrid’s preseason opener against the promoted Championship side.

Charlie told The Sun:

It was very painful. I’ve told friends and they cannot believe it. Ronaldo is the world’s most expensive player — and he broke my arm. I could see the ball coming towards me. It curled past the post and was going to hit my face — so I had to block it with my hand. My dad was sat next to me and ducked out of the way so I took the full force.

Way to go, Dad!

Luckily, Charlie is a brave young man, and insisted on staying for the rest of the game before getting his arm put in a cast at a local hospital. And once his story leaked to local media, AFC Bournemouth helped ease the pain some by handing Charlie a signed Real Madrid jersey. Even though it’s probably four times too big, it’ll work for a nice show-and-tell story in school next year.
