Ronaldo’s free kick breaks boy’s wrist

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo left a Brit fan aged 11 in agony — by smashing his wrist with a free kick.

Schoolboy Charlie Silverwood had been taken to see his team Bournemouth host Real Madrid in a friendly.

His dad DUCKED as the £80million ex-Man United forward’s wayward 35-yard rocket scorched into the stands — breaking his son’s wrist in two places.

The lad was so determined not to miss the action he kept watching for the remaining 84 minutes — before going to hospital where X-rays revealed his double fracture.
He faced an operation before being plastered.

Yesterday Charlie admitted: “It was very painful. I’ve told friends and they cannot believe it. Ronaldo is the world’s most expensive player — and he broke my arm.”

The youngster, from Christchurch in Dorset, added: “I could see the ball coming towards me. It curled past the post and was going to hit my face — so I had to block it with my hand. My dad was sat next to me and ducked out of the way so I took the full force.”

His father Lee, also a Bournemouth fan, said: “It all happened in a blur.
“One minute we were watching Ronaldo stand over the ball and the next it was flying towards Charlie.

“It must have been travelling at a rate of knots and hit Charlie right on the wrist.”
Ronaldo, 28, went on to score twice as the Spanish giants — who were paid £750,000 to appear in Sunday’s exhibition game — battered the Championship side 6-0.

One of his goals at the Cherries’ Goldsands Stadium — in front of a capacity 12,000 crowd who paid up to £60 a ticket — came from a similar trademark free kick.

Bournemouth gave Charlie — who will be in plaster for the entire six-week school holiday — a Real Madrid shirt signed by Ronaldo and his teammates to “cheer him up”.

He also got a ball signed by the Bournemouth team.
The lad’s dad said: “It is a game Charlie will never forget.”
Real Madrid spokesman Juan Camilo Andrade said: “We will be donating a memento to Charlie.”
