Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo’s strange grip on his pants in the World Cup opener against Ghana (see video below) has sparked speculation and speculation on social media and in Portuguese media.
Photos and videos of the 3-2 win against Ghana were released showing Ronaldo grabbing his pants during the game as something searched for seconds, pulled out his hand and put something in his mouth.
“A piece of chewing gum,” speculated the Portuguese newspaper “Record” on Friday, only to immediately dismiss the idea: “Unlikely”. The newspaper “A Bola” was certain that the 37-year-old captain had gotten “an energy boost”. Ronaldo could also have kept a pill in his pants. The Portuguese, who scored 1-0 against Ghana and is now the first player to score at least one goal in five different World Cups, did not comment on the much-discussed scene.
