- Cristiano Ronaldo left indelible footprints at Real Madrid scoring a staggering 450 goals in 438 appearances for the club
- The striker, at one point, silenced Colombian pop singer Shakira just five minutes after she had mocked him
- Shakira was spotted on the giant screen laughing after the Portuguese missed a glorious chance, but the striker had the last laugh
Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo rose up to the biggest moments during his time at Spanish club Real Madrid and his heroics during El Clasico left pop singer Shakira speechless.
CR7 proved a number of times, that he remains the man for the big occasion and was able to silence Shakira after she mocked him during a fierce El Clasico fixture back in 2011.
Ronaldo rejoined Manchester United last summer as he was lured away from the club during his first stint in the Premier League by Real Madrid who smashed a record £80million for his signature back in 2009.
He replicated his Old Trafford form at the Santiago Bernabeu and scored 450 goals in 438 games during his remarkable nine years with the Spanish club.
He inspired Los Blancos to a host of silverware, including two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns.
As a result of her relationship with Pique, Shakira was a regular at El Clasico clashes and she was spotted on the big screen inside the stadium laughing after CR7 missed an easy chance.
But five minutes later, the super striker powered home a delicious cross from Angel di Maria to win the match and end Real's 18-year drought in the competition, GiveMeSport reports.
Unsurprisingly, the hilarious clip of Shakira's contrasting reactions at the Mestella Stadium went viral and has resurfaced many times in recent years.
Barcelona president says Pique is suffering
Meanwhile, Sports Brief earlier reported that Gerard Pique is “suffering” and his personal life is unpleasant at the moment, according to Barcelona President Joan Laporta.
In recent weeks, the Barcelona defender has been a hot topic after it emerged that he reportedly cheated on his stunning wife Shakira.
Pique and Shakira also confirmed all was not well in paradise as they shared a joint statement confirming they were not together anymore after 11 years.
