Even when you’re the best player in the world, you can make mistakes.
And Cristiano Ronaldo found that out the hard way one morning this week.
The Real Madrid superstar posted a cheeky snap of himself visiting a statue of Buddha on his Instagram account.
You may notice that his right leg (which is currently insured for £50million) is rested on the side of the statue.
Turns out that this is a big no no in the Buddhism world and the move has caused outrage amongst the religion’s followers.
Although Buddhism is a famously peaceful religion, the Buddhists saw this as Ronaldo showing huge disrespect.
We don’t reckon CR7 did this on purpose, but he sure won’t be doing it again – people are fuming at the picture!
He’s probably cost himself a few fans with this one, have a look at the reaction below:
