Brazilian television presenter and journalist Fatima Bernardes gave the football world a fright on Thursday evening when she accidentally announced the death of Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo live on air.
While reporting on the tragic death of Brazilian singer Cristiano Araújo, Bernardes got her names mixed up and said “Cristiano Ronaldo” instead.
But being the model pro she is, she quickly realised her mistake and stopped short of finishing the former Manchester United star’s name to read the correct one.
Though, really, her mistake isn’t funny (but it is a little) it just goes to show how much of a key cultural figure Ronaldo is, not just in the world of sport, but life in general.
