Cristiano Ronaldo subjected to homophobic abuse in Portugal's Euro 2020 win over Hungary from sold-out crowd

CRISTIANO RONALDO was subjected to homophobic abuse during Portugal's win over Hungary, according to reports.

The Juventus superstar, 36, lined up for the reigning European champions in their Group F opener on Tuesday.

But according to Record, sections of the 55,000-strong sell-out crowd inside the Puskas Arena in Budapest allegedly attacked the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

The report states there were chants of 'Cristiano Ronaldo, homosexual'.

Ronaldo was clearly unfazed by the crowd's claimed attacks.

He responded by scoring twice as Portugal broke the Hungarian resistance with three late goals.

That pair of goals took him on to 11 Euros goals, taking him two clear at the top of the all-time scoring charts in the tournament.

But it is off the pitch the father-of-four, in a long-term relationship with Georgina Rodriguez, has been creating waves, too.

Ronaldo hit the headlines for removing the Coca-Cola bottles from his press conference, telling fans to drink water instead.

That move alone knocked a whopping £2.83billion off the drinks giant's value.


And it set a trend with Italy hero Manuel Locatelli following suit after his man-of-the-match performance against Switzerland.

Portugal are back in action at 5pm on Saturday when they take on Germany in Munich.
