POV Video: Woman Takes Cristiano Ronaldo Penalty Kick to the Face

ronaldo free kick

Normally it’s hard to get a sense of just how quickly things move in a soccer match. The field is huge, fans don’t sit THAT close to the action, and the camera angle is, more often than not, a birdseye view. But every once in a while, we get a video like this that reminds us just how fast the action can be at times.

A fan sitting a few rows behind the goal was recording a video when Cristiano Ronaldo took his penalty kick. Bad news for Ronaldo: He missed the goal. Bad news for the fan: He missed the goal.

The kick flew straight at the fan and knocked the camera out of her hand.

Watch:

Don’t let your attention drift too far from the projectile zooming towards your head. The video’s not the most important thing—your face is.
