Cristiano Ronaldo left a poor defenceless man needing stitches after the Real Madrid star subjected an innocent bystander to a vicious physical assault ahead of the Champions League final.
While Real Madrid were limbering up at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Ronaldo let fly with a tomahawk shot that flew past the goal and directly into the unsuspecting face of Juan Lorenzana Prieto, a television reporter for Univision Deportes.

Prieto suffered a cut above his eye and had to be taken to the medical room to have his brow repaired.
When he reappeared behind the goal, Ronaldo spotted his victim from afar and had one of his minions send over a peace offering in the form of a sweat-sopped training jersey.
Thankfully, the gift was accepted, with Prieto posing semi-happily with the shirt he plans to bang on Ebay at the first available juncture…
