And Budapest security staff later intervened after a supporter came on – while Ron stayed alert as he spotted a bottle hurtling towards him.

It comes a week after the Juventus legend removed two Coca-Cola bottles from a press conference table to spark a row over sponsorship.

Ronaldo rubbed his back after appearing to be hit by cups, following a spot-kick that completed the scoring amid a gripping Group F finale. 

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United frontman had extra reasons to rejoice at scoring that second goal.
