Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal might have been knock out of the World Cup after losing to Uruguay, but he’s also getting an online mockery for pulling his shorts up before taking a free-kick.
He lined up to take it and Ronaldo struck his trademark wide-legged stance, although he appeared to pull up his shorts up even higher than usual, revealing his well-sculpted thighs.

In the end the end he failed with his free-kick, which struck the wall, but succeeded in getting fans talking about him on social media.
Former Manchester United assistant Mike Phelan revealed Ronaldo was obsessed with practising free-kicks when he was at Old Trafford.
He told the Mail: “He is the ultimate showman. He has that slight arrogance.
“When he pulls those shorts up and shows his thighs, he is saying ‘All eyes on me’ and this is going in.
Ronaldo is clearly proud of them, earlier in the week the Portugal team had posted this picture from their training camp in Russia, with him having the same look with his shorts.
It’s certainly a strange look and those on social media couldn’t wait to joke about it.
