Egyptian fencer Mohamed Elsayed went viral on social media after marking a stunning win at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic with a rendition of Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous ‘Siuuu!’ celebration.

The 18-year-old sealed victory over three-time world champion Yannick Borel, per The Sun, and then produced a celebration that football fans are used to seeing on a regular basis.

Borel, who won a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, was left shell-shocked after losing his first-round match at the Tokyo 2020 epee event.

His victorious teenage opponent made the most of the moment by removing his face guard and then replicating Ronaldo’s celebration.

Speaking to Soccer.com - per The Sun - the Portuguese legend added: "We were playing a game against Chelsea in the United States, and it just came to my mind.

"I just scored and I yelled 'si' (yes). It was truly a natural thing.

"I started doing that from that day on, and fans seem to like it.

"Later on, people on the street stopped me to yell at me 'Cristiano, siiiuuu', they bonded with me through the celebration and I decided to keep it up."
