In a video that has gone viral on social media, the man scored from a penalty in a five-a-side game.

He sprinted in delight and attempted to cap off his goal with Ronaldo’s trademark celebration but it didn’t go well.

Unfortunately, though, he landed awkwardly and was later captured being carried on a stretcher into a hospital for treatment.

Ronaldo adopted his ‘Siuuu’ celebration while at Real Madrid and it has now become a popular celebration among millennials.

In an interview with YouTube channel Soccer.com in 2019, the Portugal international said the celebration came to him naturally.

“It was when we were playing Chelsea in the USA [a 3-0 win over José Mourinho’s side in August 2013] and I really don’t know how it came about,” Ronaldo said.

“I scored and it just came out. It was completely natural to be honest. Afterwards, I realized I enjoyed it and started to do it more often. I saw that the fans liked it and that they’d remember it so I carried on doing it.”

In a separate interview, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner explained: "I started to say ‘si’, it’s like ‘yes’, when I was in Real Madrid.

"I just scored the goal and it just came out. It was just natural, to be honest. Since that, I started to do it more often and I feel like the supporters and the fans see it and they’re like ‘Cristiano, siiiiiiuuuu’.

"I’m like ‘wow! People are reminded of me because of it!’ So it’s good, and I’ll continue doing it like that."

Ronaldo still does the ‘Siuuu’ whenever he scores for Manchester United, his current club.
