Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world, sure. But he is also one of the most divisive… in terms of likability anyway.
He might be good, but he’s also a bit of prima donna…
So, when he pulled up his shorts all weird like before taking a free kick (that went straight into the wall) as Portugal were tussling for a spot in the quarterfinals, of course the internet had questions… and suggestions.
To be fair to him, he does this sort of thing quite often. But it’s a bit more noticeable when the pressure is on. And Black Twitter had the following questions as well mas answers……

Free kick just outside the box.
1. Place ball
2. Walk back from ball
3. Power stance
4. Check big screen
5. Breathe deeply
6. Breathe a little more deeply
8. Check big screen
9. Breathe very deeply
10. Do something strange with shorts#URUPOR #Ronaldo pic.twitter.com/y1shfMG0w9

Is there any reason why Ronaldo hitches up his shorts when he takes a free kick? Is it easier to kick a ball like that? If so, why not do it all the time?

Ronaldo on taking free kicks with his shorts pulled up. He wants to show his muscle legs to the crowd and camera. I mean like what's that gotta do with you taking the free kick

Ronaldo flashing his thighs every time he has a free kick. Can't remember Beckham ever doing that to his shorts #WorldCup

Speaking of Twitter…
“Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player in the world.”
That’s not only the view of all Portugal and Real Madrid fans but also the president of the United States.
“They say he is the greatest player,” Donaldo Trump told Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa when the two heads of state met in the White House. “So, tell me, how good a player is he?” asked Trump. “Are you impressed?” I’m very much impressed. He’s the best player in the world,” nodded De Sousa.
But despite his popularity, Ronaldo has no chance of swapping the keys of his dressing room locker for the keys of state.
“So will (Cristiano) ever run for president against you?” Trump asked Robelo de Sousa. “He wouldn’t win! You know he won’t win?”. “Well, president, you know there’s something I must tell you,” replied Rebelo de Sousa. “Portugal is not the United States. It’s a little different!”
