Cristiano Ronaldo reinforced his claim as the vainest footballer in the world after he appeared to take a Real Madrid physio’s smartphone in order to check damage to his face.
The Portuguese, who netted a brace in Real Madrid’s 7-1 rout over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday, received a nasty kick to the face from Fabian Schar in scoring his second.
His brave diving header gave Real Madrid their sixth of the game, but it came with a cost. Schar’s boot left Ronaldo with blood profusely leaking from his head, covering his face and his pristine white shirt in the red stuff.
The Portugal international did brilliantly to stoop to head home Lucas Vazquez’s cross from the edge of the six-yard box, the player’s second goal in a convincing 7-1 win for the La Liga champions.

His two goals in the 7-1 victory at the Bernabeu proved he still has plenty to offer on the pitch and he will have been happy to break a drought that stretches back to December 9.
However, in scoring the goal at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo received a hefty kick to the head for his troubles, which left the playmaker with a bloodied face.
As Ronaldo left the pitch to receive treatment from the Real doctor, though, he made sure he could see what damage had been done to his face by using the physio’s mobile phone.
And luckily for the great man, his famed good looks were still in place!
