WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo Praised For What He Did To Gianluigi Buffon After Real Madrid Win
Cristiano Ronaldo may have sent Real Madrid through to the Champions League semi finals with a last gasp penalty on Wednesday night, but he still had the humility to embrace Juventus’ Gianluigi Buffon in the mixed zone after the game.
GRAB THIS CORAL OFFER!
Juve were 3-0 having pulled back the deficit from the first leg, and they were heading for extra time before referee Michael Oliver awarded a penalty for a foul by Mehdi Benatia on Lucas Vazquez in stoppage time. Buffon was then sent off for his reaction to the decision, in what will likely be his final ever European game.

But the mutual respect between he and Ronaldo has always been clear and it was again on show during the post-match interviews. As Buffon was speaking to the press, Ronaldo interrupted him to give him a hug.
