Cristiano Ronaldo Drilled in the Head by a Lighter Thrown by a Fan

By Mike Cardillo

Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid defeated rival Atletico Madrid Tuesday in the Copa del Rey semifinals. It wasn’t all smiles for Ronaldo, however. As the Portuguese star walked off the field at the Vicente Calderón Stadium, joking with teammate Sergio Ramos, he took a lighter flung from the stands square in the side of the head.

The good news here? His famous, well-groomed coif appeared to escape the incident unscathed.

Sadly, as is often the case, fans in any sport on any continent, can be major jerks.
