The former World's Strongest Man took incredible joy in reminding the Real Madrid superstar of the group's standings after Iceland finished above Portugal in Group F

Icelandic former World's Strongest Man Magnus Ver Magnusson has hit back at Cristiano Ronaldo in a scathing Facebook post after the Portugal captain criticised the nation in the aftermath of their 1-1 Euro 2016 draw.

Ronaldo was unimpressed with the mass celebrations of the tournament's least populous country after they took a shock point from the Real Madrid superstar's side.

However, with Iceland, appearing at their first major tournament, finishing above Portugal in Group F, the four-time World's Strongest Man winner has delighted in responding to Ronaldo.

"Dear Cristiano Ronaldo," he wrote on his Facebook page. "When you said Iceland will never win anything I bet you weren't expecting this as the final results of the qualifying group.

"Have a good look you self centered egotistical w****r."

Magnusson then attached an image of the group's final standings, showing Iceland in second after their last-ditch 2-1 win over Austria on Wednesday.

They will now face England in the next round, while Portugal meet in-form Croatia.
