Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo replied with a stunning gesture towards one of the cameramen in Kiev, where the player was practicing with his teammates in a training session.

Real are in Champions League finale, and will take on Liverpool on May 26. During the session at the Olympic Stadium, the Portuguese was taking a shot.

But rather than hitting the target, he ended up injuring a camera person, who was attending the practice session. He ended up being struck on his head, which led to profound bleeding.

Lorenzana Prieto, who works for Spanish-language American television station Univision Deportes Network, saw his camera hit his own face after the ball struck the same.

The Spaniard had a deep cut over his right eye, and it led to a lot of bleeding. He was trying to stop the blood flow with his handkerchief.

He was treated soon and escaped major damage, but ended up with a plaster over the wound. But his day turned better when Ronaldo issued an apology with a wave from the pitch and gave him a gift instead.


The Real Madrid hero presented Prieto with his Champions League training top Рvia a member of the backroom team. The cameraman was seen posing with the same, and he is set to remember the incident for the rest of his life.

Ronaldo is eyeing a fifth career Champions League crown and a fourth with Real. A win against Liverpool on Saturday will see the player win his third successive UCL title with Los Blancos. Ronaldo has been in tremendous form this campaign, after hitting a record 15 goals so far.
