An attempted imitation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic SIU celebration went horribly wrong during a local kickabout with one exuberant fan taken straight to hospital.
The Manchester United and Portugal icon has accompanied many of his 800 career goals with the spinning jump celebration – but not all have what it takes to repeat it.
One viral video shows an excited supporter reel off after scoring a penalty on a small local pitch only for his left knee to collapse after landing as his friends began to shout SIU.
It then cuts to a clip of the fallen footballer, while still in high spirits, being taken down what appears to be a hospital hallway by two friends while sitting on a wheelchair.
An X-Ray then takes place with the man still wearing his football attire, with a final video showing him enjoying a pizza and a drink in the waiting room.
The 26 second clip has attracted 44 thousand likes and almost six thousand retweets since it was first posted in March – bringing in an astonishing 6.2 million views.
