Cris of life: Ronaldo rushes to check after ‘KNOCKING OUT female steward with misfired shot in warm-up’ (VIDEO)

Cristiano Ronaldo rushed to check on a stricken female steward after she had been hit with a wayward shot reportedly hit by Ronaldo himself as he warmed up for Manchester United’s Champions League clash in Switzerland.

The incident occurred as the Portuguese star prepared for the match against Young Boys at their Wankdorf stadium.

Practicing shots from range, the all-time Champions League top scorer misfired and hit the poor steward by accident, according to pitchside reports. 

The steward immediately fell to the ground, and joining others to check all was OK, Ronaldo immediately went over to the injured party and spent some time explaining himself as fans recorded him.

Then, once he knew the steward seemed to be alright, he ran back onto the turf to continue warming up.

Following on from a dream return to Old Trafford where he bagged two goals in a 4-1 win over Newcastle United at the weekend, Ronaldo was clearly unshaken by the incident.

Needing just 13 minutes to make his mark, he met a superb cross from compatriot Bruno Fernandes that was buried past a helpless David Von Ballmoos.

Extending his all-time Champions League goals haul to 135 ahead of generational rival Lionel Messi's 120, Ronaldo's evening was complicated when Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a red card on 35 minutes.

But if United can hold on to their lead, their campaign on the continent gets off to a perfect start that thankfully wasn't blighted by their new signing's training mishap.
