Cristiano Ronaldo sent a touching message to his former club Real Madrid fans after knocking rivals Atletico out of the Champions League with Juventus.
The Portuguese superstar scored his eighth European hat-trick in Turin as the Italian side reached the quarter-finals.
After the game, Ronaldo was making his way through the mixed zone with his son and had little intention to stop – until he saw Edu Aguirre, a reporter for Spanish TV show El Chiringuito.
Although he was keen to make a swift exit, he said: “I send a hug to El Chiringuito, [Tomas] Roncero and all Real Madrid fans.”
