The footballer of Real Madrid has responded to the player of the rivaling team who called him “a fag*ot with a lot of money, sh*thead”. Spanish radio revealed the exchanged occurred during Saturday’s derby between the two teams where Real Madrid won three-nil thanks to a hat-trick scored by Ronaldo. The footballer who offended Ronaldo refused to give any comments.
Ronaldo was given a yellow card for his part in the altercation and had not received one in any of the previous 12 meetings with Atletico Madrid. The Portuguese player has continually refused to comment on speculations about his sexuality. Last year, he denied rumours that his relationship with a close friend was, in fact, a same-sex romance. He was also snapped on holiday with boxer Badr Har where the two ‘got married’. Ronaldo has received homophobic abuse in the past.
