Ronaldo injures cameraman with wayward shot
A cameraman covering Real Madrid’s Champions League final training session got more than he signed up for Friday — a gash on the head and Cristiano Ronaldo’s jacket!
At Kiev’s Olympic Stadium ahead of Saturday’s UCL final against Liverpool, Ronaldo blasted a wayward shot that struck a pitchside cameraman — identified as Univision’s Juan Lorenzana Prieto — and left the media member in need of medical assistance.
Ronaldo saw what happened and immediately put his hands on his head in shock, then tried to make up for the accident.

The Portuguese superstar continued to look over to see how Lorenzana Prieto was doing, then took off his warm-up jacket.
Marca reported that Lorenzana Prieto needed stitches, but he wasn’t seriously injured, as evidenced by moving to the other side of the cameras to pose with his gift — and his bandage!
