Cristiano Ronaldo used a phone during a game and there’s already hundreds of memes

The Real Madrid superstar was the subject endless tweets following Real Madrid's 7-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna

Only Cristiano Ronaldo could produce such a reaction.

Real Madrid came from a goal down to beat Deportivo La Coruna 7-1 at the Bernabeu in La Liga this afternoon.

Ronaldo joined Gareth Bale and Nacho in scoring a brace with Luka Modric settling for just the one and Zinedine Zidane’s side swaggered to a convincing victory.

A mixed day for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner

However, because modern football is the way it is, one particular moment sparked more activity than any of the goals.

Ronaldo was left bloodied after stooping to head his second goal, catching a boot to the cranium for his troubles.

After receiving initial treatment from Real Madrid’s physio, the Portuguese superstar used a phone to check the damage.

Cue the memes…

Naturally, the good people of Twitter didn’t let such an opportunity go to waste…

Yes Sid, yes they probably are.

A lot of “game’s gone” type of fans seemed to be angered by Ronaldo’s use of technology to check his injury.

We don’t seem what’s so bad about it — most players would want to check the extent of the damage before deciding whether they were going to play on or not.

We’re almost hoping Ronaldo uploads a bloody selfie now, just to see how many people it TRIGGERS.
