Cristiano Ronaldo High Fives Non-Existent Fans And Applauds In Empty Stadium After Juventus Win
Cristiano Ronaldo hilariously pretended to high five non-existent fans as Juventus were forced to play their match behind closed doors due to the coronavirus.
Juventus clashed with Inter Milan in an important Serie A match on Sunday, with a current ban put in place in Italy for sports matches to be played in empty stadiums until 3rd April.
Despite the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country, Ronaldo found the funny side of no fans being allowed to attend the match at the Allianz Stadium.
The 35-year-old Portuguese superstar was first spotted climbing off the team bus and putting his hand out as he greeted non-existent fans awaiting his arrival.
Ronaldo looked towards the camera and had a cheeky smile on his face ahead of Juventus' match with Inter.
Footage later emerged of the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star clapping with his hands held high after the full-time whistle.
Inter have now fallen nine points behind league leaders Juventus after their 2-0 defeat at the Allianz Stadium.
Former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey pounced on a loose ball in the second half and fired home the opener.
The 29-year-old Wales international played his part in Juventus' second as he picked out Paulo Dybala, who pulled off some fancy footwork to dummy Ashley Young and find the back of the net.
Ronaldo went into the match on an 11-match league scoring streak, which was a joint-record held by Gabriel Batistuta and Fabio Quagliarella.
But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner fell short of breaking the record as he failed to find the back of the net in a Serie A match for the first time since 10th November.
Defending champions Juventus hold a one-point lead at the top of the table over Lazio.
The Old Lady will return to action on Friday when they travel away for their Serie A clash with Bologna.
