The injury which forced Cristiano Ronaldo to be withdrawn from the Euro 2016 final has bizarrely been likened to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ by his sister.

The Real Madrid superstar had to be taken off midway through the first half of Portugal's 2-0 win over France after sustaining an interior cruciate ligament injury.

Ronaldo fell to a heap after colliding with France's Dimitri Payet and although he tried to carry on, the 31-year-old couldn't play through the pain.

And his sister, Katia Aveiro, has since compared her brother's pain at not being able to star in Portugal's triumph to Jesus Christ dying for the sins of humankind on Instagram.

She wrote: “These tears I cried for my wounded brother were like daggers to the heart, and we all cried with him for the awful pain we had together.

“But God is great and just as our savior Jesus Christ suffered on the cross for a better world for us, Cristiano cried in the pain of not being able to help his teammates and his beloved people.

“But God is just and they deservedly lifted the trophy, and fulfilled the dream; we are champions.”
