Cristiano Ronaldo reacts after Al Hilal fans mock him with Lionel Messi chant during Al Nassr match
| Last updated
Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo reacted after Al Hilal fans mocked him with Lionel Messi chants during the Riyadh Season Cup game between the two sides.
There were surreal scenes before the match even kicked off, with WWE legend The Undertaker appearing - complete with his full 'Deadman' entrance - to lift the trophy. It is reported that he will present the trophy to the winning team at full-time.
Once the match kicked off, though, it was a nightmare start for Ronaldo's side, as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic opened the scoring for Al Hilal on 17 minutes.
Salem Al Dawsari then made it 2-0 on 30 minutes, leaving Al Nassr with a mountain to climb in the second half.
It was a half to forget for Ronaldo, who missed an early opportunity to score - and the crowd certainly let him know about it.
There were various Lionel Messi chants around the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, with Al Hilal taking the opportunity to mock their opponents' star man.
Ronaldo then responded with a thumbs-up towards the crowd, before pulling out his iconic 'calm down' hand gesture.

Once the second half kicked off, Ronaldo then earned himself a booking from American referee Tori Penso.
The 39-year-old, clearly unhappy with a decision that was made, responded by smashing the ball directly into the crowd from in line with the centre circle.
