Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid star gets nutmegged in training by teammate, absolutely loses it

Cristiano Ronaldo is renowned for his highly-strung temperament, with the Real Madrid player rarely unafraid to vent his frustrations on the pitch.

Zinedine Zidane was notably subjected to Ronaldo’s mood swings after the Frenchman brought the disgruntled Portuguese star off during Madrid’s 2-2 draw to Las Palmas earlier this month.

But Ronaldo has taken his tantrums to a new level after he was filmed losing his cool in a recent open training session.

During a light-hearted training exercise, Danilo was filmed threading the ball through Ronaldo’s legs to nutmeg the Portuguese - much to the delight of teammate Marcelo.

Having been used to dishing out nutmegs to his opponents, Ronaldo clearly didn’t enjoy being given a taste of his own medicine.

Although the camera doesn’t show his face at first, his body language certainly suggests he was less than impressed at being shown up by his teammates.

After exchanging some brief words with Marcelo, Ronaldo turns towards the press in anger and fires the ball in the direction of the press box.

As he did so, he allegedly muttered: “Now you have material to talk about for the next two days.”

Some things never change.
