CR7 wins the internet with hilarious pre-match act

WATCH: Ronaldo wins the internet by shaking hands with 'invisible' fans ahead of Juventus-Inter clash

March 8, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Spectators were not allowed to witness the arrival of the matchday squad due to coronavirus so the Portuguese forward pretended they were there ahead of the match.

No fans were allowed at the Allianz Stadium due to coronavirus but that did not prevent Cristiano Ronaldo from completing his pre-match ritual of meeting and greeting fans ahead of Sunday evening's encounter with Inter Milan. Following Juve's arrival at the stadium, the 34-year-old forward made light of the situation by pretending that there were onlookers awaiting the arrival of him and his teammates and ended up giving high-fives to the missing parties.

In what was his 1,000th career appearance, Cristiano Ronaldo was denied the opportunity to compete in front of the usual crowd that grace Juve's home grounds on each matchday. This was as a result of the coronavirus outbreak that has forced the Italian government rule that all sporting activities in the country must be played closed doors until April 3.

Still, that did not stop the former Real Madrid striker to "share a good moment" with his admirers although they were no-existent this time around. With a smile on his face, he pretended to high five all the invisible fans while he headed for the dressing room after getting off the team bus. Watch the moment below:

Regarding the day's business, Ronaldo saw his incredible goalscoring streak come to an end. The Portuguese superstar assisted Aaron Ramsey for Juve's first goal in the 56th minute but was unable to find the back of the net himself. Paulo Dybala sealed the maximum points for the Old Ladies with a sensational strike in the 67th minute.

Below is how some fan reacted to Ronaldo's pre-match act on social media:
