Cristiano Ronaldo goes viral for ‘reaction’ to Robert Lewandowski winning FIFA award



Robert Lewandowski has been named the world’s best player at FIFA’s ‘The Best’ awards.

The Bayern Munich striker was the worthy recipient of the biggest individual prize in the beautiful game this year with the Ballon d’Or having been shelved for 2020 by France Football.

And Lewandowski defeated some of the greatest footballers of all time to achieve the feat with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi proving the other two candidates competing for glory.

Ronaldo’s ‘viral’ reaction

All three men attended the online gala in Nyon, Switzerland with Gianni Infantino eventually being on hand to present the trophy to Lewandowski in person.

Interestingly, we got to see the ‘reactions’ of the two runners-up and Ronaldo’s facial expression quickly went viral across social media as he seemed to be less than pleased with the decision.

The video call he had joined appeared to show him looking far from engaged, either bordering on an eye roll at one point or looking at a monitor high above him – check some of the reaction:

Footage of the winning moment

Was he frozen? Was he gutted that he didn’t win? Was he hacked off that Lewandowski got the nod? Well, you can make up your own mind by checking out the footage down below:

Was Ronaldo annoyed?

It’s hard to tell whether Ronaldo is holding that pose because he’s completely unmoved by the situation or the technology has let FIFA down at the most crucial of moments.

Either way, screenshots of Ronaldo’s reaction spread across social media like wildfire with many fans jumping to the conclusion that the Juventus star was unhappy not to have won.

While that might make Ronaldo sound incredibly vain, it’s more to do with his elite mentality, which is something that can be attested by near enough everybody to share a dressing room with him.

But regardless of whether the toys did or did not fly out of the pram, you can guarantee that Ronaldo will use defeat as motivation to try and get his hands on the award when 2021 rolls around.
