The latest episode of last weekend’s incident presents us with a huge surprise as Cristiano Ronaldo’s captain’s armband has been put up for an online auction by a charity foundation.
Ronaldo is so famous that anything related to him can be put up for auction and it would retain a sizeable amount. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has put up a controversial reaction following an infamous 2-2 draw between his Portugal side and Serbia. His reaction has since then created chaos on social media as he was robbed of his match-winning goal.
In the final minutes of the game between Portugal and Serbia, Cristiano Ronaldo threw his captain’s armband on the field as he walked off frustrated towards the dressing room. Now, Cristiano Ronaldo’s captain’s armband is being auctioned off in Serbia to help pay for a baby’s medical treatment.
The surprise is that a charity foundation managed to obtain Cristiano Ronaldo’s captain’s armband and the money raised will be put in for surgery for a six-month-old boy with spinal muscular atrophy.
As per the Associated Press, the charity foundation received this valuable armband from a stadium worker. Apparently, he picked it up after Ronaldo threw it and stormed into the tunnel before the full-time whistle.
The foundation stated that the blue armband with the capital letter C in white will be displayed on an online auction for three days. After all, we can say that the Portuguese international’s ill actions have come to fruition.
