Man attempts Cristiano Ronaldo's SIU celebration and ends up in hospital

​A five-a-side player attempted to mimic Cristiano Ronaldo's trademark 'SIUU' celebration, but, unfortunately, ended up in hospital. 

Ronaldo's iconic celebration is often imitated by fans - and even his teammates, with it being synonymous with the Manchester United superstar. 

But not everyone has mastered the 'SIUU' celebration.

A man tried to do his best Ronaldo impression after scoring a goal in a five-a-side match. However, his execution was slightly off as he landed horribly on his left leg.

As a result, he had to be transported to hospital. Though after his treatment he did have a bottle of beer and pizza. 

Unlucky lad, better luck next time. 

What is the origin of Ronaldo's now famous celebration? Well, it all came about during a pre-season game for Real Madrid against Chelsea back in 2013. 

"I started to say 'si', it’s like 'yes', when I was in Real Madrid," he explained. "When we would win, everyone would say ‘siiiii’ and so I started to say it. I don’t know why, it was natural.

"I was in the USA and we played against Chelsea [in 2013] and I don’t know where this is coming from, the celebration.

"I just scored the goal and it just came out. It was just natural, to be honest. Since that, I started to do it more often and I feel like the supporters and the fans see it and they’re like 'Cristiano, siiiiiiuuuuu'.

"I’m like ‘wow! People are reminded of me because of it!’ So it’s good, and I’ll continue doing it like that."

Despite the celebration being part of Ronaldo's identity, Peter Crouch reckons he's doing it far too much

And former Manchester City man Trevor Sinclair has even claimed that he was the one who created the 'SIUU' celebration.
