Let's hope he finally gets the right punishment. He can't keep getting away with it. His behaviour is unacceptable.
I'm being hounded by people saying I'm dragging it up again but I didn't know anything about it. He should have been dealt with six months ago. My son talks about what happened to him every day. He still hasn't had his phone back.

After the incident, Ronaldo took to Instagram to apologise to the young supporter but his mother rejected it.
