Louis Rees-Zammit explains Cristiano Ronaldo celebration against Portugal
Wales star Louis Rees-Zammit kept his promise to friends and fellow Manchester United fans with a Cristiano Ronaldo-style celebration against Portugal.
Rees-Zammit’s second try at the Rugby World Cup was followed by him impersonating Portugal international and former United player Ronaldo’s so-called ‘Siuuu’ move where he jumps and turns in the air, his back to the crowd when landing.
“Ronaldo is my favourite player,” Rees-Zammit said.
“I wear his boxers and I dress like him. And I thought ‘why not do his celebration as well’?
“A few of my mates back home wanted me to do it. They are massive football fans, and obviously we don’t play Portugal very often.
“So I said if I scored I would do it for them. But I don’t want to talk about the Man United result (a 3-1 home defeat to Brighton).”
Wales’ attention now turns to a pivotal Pool C clash against Australia in Lyon next weekend.
