Mohamed Salah was forced to leave the stadium teary-eyed after the Egyptian got injured badly during the UEFA Champions League finals in Kiev. Ramos pulled the Egyptian star after the ball was gone and thus the latter landed on his opposite shoulder, leaving it dislocated. Real Madrid captain did apologize for the act but Cristiano Ronaldo went to the Liverpool forward and consoled the teary-eyed Salah who left the ground within in half an hour of the game.

The picture of the act went viral and created a divided opinion amongst the Twitterati. While many labelled Ronaldo as an attention seeker, others praised his sportsmanship.

“Is it wrong that the cynical half of me thinks #Ronaldo only went up to #Salah like this as he was walking off the pitch because he realised the cameras would be on him at that moment definitely #Coyg #goonerfamily #Arsenal #UCLfinal #halamadrid #salahinjury #RamosTheAnimal.”

CR7 fan wrote, “Act of generosity by our King 👑 #Ronaldo 😘😘😘.”

“If sadness had a face 😓 Respect for #Ronaldo 💕,” read a post.

“I cant believe you asked that. Ronaldo of all people. Do you remember the Euro? Portugal vs France final 2016. Ronaldo knows EXACTLY how it feels to have to come off injured in one of the biggest games of his life, “read a tweet.

“The Winner of #UCLfinal is #Salah #Ronaldo,” read a post.

This is not the first time that Ronaldo won hearts with this acts. CR7 ahead of the finals was training for the big game. Instead of hitting the ball in the net, it reached the media box leaving a camera person injured. As a gesture of apology Ronaldo gave him his jersey.
