Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick breaks boy's wrist

Published 3 Comments

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his powerful free-kicks, but in the Bournemouth v Real Madrid match he took this to a whole new level.

Charlie Silverwood had been taken to the game by his father; however, after a few minutes he was in pain.

When Ronaldo lined up for the free-kick little would Charlie or his father know what awaited them.

When a Ronaldo free-kick went narrowly wide, it was at first going towards Charlie's fathers head. However, his father ducked leaving him to take the full force of the shot.

He stayed for the rest of the game though before going to hospital and finding that he had double-fractured the wrist.

Charlie told The Sun: "I’ve told my friends and they can't believe it. Ronaldo is the world's most expensive player-and he broke my arm."

Thankfully, it all ended well for Charlie as he was given a signed Real Madrid shirt and a Bournemouth ball to cheer him up.

Charlie's father said: "It is a game Charlie will never forget".
