Pitch “invader” gives Ronaldo lengthy hug as Real Madrid clinches ICC title

August 8th, 2013

The preseason is a time for extensive fitness regimens, wrinkles in the playbook, welcoming new players, a little bit of fun, and of course, hugs. Warm, intimate, unabated hugs. 

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the receiving end last night during the International Champions Cup final, after a young fan ran onto the pitch to spend some quality time in the arms of his idol. The young man, who benefited from an alarmingly unresponsive security team, whispered sweet nothings into Ronaldo’s ear for a good twenty seconds before the star of the evening (CR7 scored two great goals to lead Real Madrid to the title) helped direct him back to the sidelines, visibly touched by what he heard.

We couldn’t possibly know what was said, but judging by Ronaldo’s face, it was probably something to the effect of “You totally should have won every Ballon d’Or over Messi.”

This is the second instance this summer where a fan was barely stopped from reaching their idols. A few weeks ago, a die-hard Didier Drogba fan had to be dragged off the pitch by the Ivorian striker himself during a friendly match in Shrewsbury.

Meanwhile, no fans ran up to hug Jose Mourinho, who before the match took a stab at his former player by saying he is not “the real Ronaldo” (the Brazilian). Not feeling so special now, are we Jose?
