Cristiano Ronaldo got fans talking after checking out a cut to his face using the team physio’s phone.

Ronaldo sustained the injury during Real Madrid’s 7-1 clash against Deportivo, while scoring Real’s sixth goal of the day.

The cut bled profusely, leaving tracks down his face, so understandably, he wanted to survey the damage before he left the pitch.

However, once fans glimpsed the act, they took to Twitter to poke fun at the Portuguese star.

Although many were construing Ronaldo’s actions as vanity, others were quick to defend the five-time Ballon D’or winner.

However you feel, it brought some extra excitement to the game, that’s for sure.
