Cristiano Ronaldo hits back at alleged homophobic jibe

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back at an alleged homophobic attack by saying he was “a fag*ot with a lot of money, sh*thead”.

Details of the Real Madrid star’s heated clash with Atlético Madrid midfielder Koke during Saturday’s derby match have emerged.

Cristiano Ronaldo might have helped Real Madrid romp to victory against arch-rivals Atletico Madrid during Saurday’s derby match, but the football superstar has hit the headlines for rather different reasons following a mid-match scuffle with Spanish opponent Jorge Resurrección Merodio, more commonly known as ‘Koke’.

Both players were handed a yellow card after pressing heads during a tense exchange during the match’s 63rd minute, at which point Real Madrid were 1-nil up on their rivals.

Since the match – which Real Madrid eventually won 3-0 thanks to a hat trick from Ronaldo – Spanish radio station Cope claims to have overhead the details of the heated incident, which allegedly saw Ronaldo hit back in style after Koke threw a homophobic slur his way.

After Koke called him a “f*ggot”, the 31-year-old is said to have allegedly retorted: “Yes, a f*ggot. But a very rich one, sh*thead.”

The incident is certainly not the first time Ronaldo – who recently showed us exactly what he gets up to in the locker room when he stripped off for the Portuguese national football team’s Mannequin Challenge – has been subject to homophobic abuse on the pitch.

Back in April, a Spanish LGBT rights group made a formal complaint to Spain’s State Commission against Violence in Sport after Ronaldo was subjected to repeated homophobic slurs from the crowd during a match.

Meanwhile, French sports presenter courted controversy last year after implying that Ronaldo’s relationship with boxer Badr Hari was more than just friendship, while a German newspaper was criticised earlier this summer for appearing to question the footballing hero’s sexuality after he shared photos of men relaxing aboard his luxury yacht.
