Richard Keys Receives Plenty Of Backlash After Posting Tweet About Ronaldo
It was wonderful to see the original Ronaldo back in a Real Madrid shirt, tearing it up at the Bernabeu at the weekend.
Six years after hanging up his boots, R9 took to the pitch for a 33 minute cameo in a legends game against Roma at the weekend, with the Brazilian legend showing that he's still not lost it by producing this lovely piece of play in a 4-0 win:

Of course, the 40-year old was not in the peak physical condition as he was back in his prime, but former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys did not to needlessly mock one of the most gifted forwards ever to play the game, when he produced a Tweet featuring a screenshot of a Daily Mirror article about the three Ronaldos, and the caption 'Who ate all the pies?'.
Fans on social media instantly went after the BeIN Sports Broadcaster, with one letting Keys know that Ronaldo Nazario suffers from hypothyroidism - an illness that causes weight gain and makes it incredibly difficult to shift that weight:

Keys is yet to respond to any of the replies since clicking the 'Tweet' button earlier today. It was just 'banter', obviously...
