Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t turn water into wine or rise from the dead or even play the vast majority of the Euro 2016 final Portugal won last weekend. But he did hurt his knee and cry, which was apparently enough for his sister to compare him to Christ on the cross.
Here’s his sister’s Instagram post where she expresses her joy about her countrymen and in particular her brother’s performances on that fateful day:
And here’s a translation of the caption, via the Independent:
“These tears I cried for my wounded brother were like daggers to the heart, and we all cried with him for the awful pain we had together.
“But God is great and just as our saviour Jesus Christ suffered on the cross for a better world for us, Cristiano cried in the pain of not being able to help his teammates and his beloved people.
“God is just and they deservedly lifted the trophy, and fulfilled the dream; we are champions.”
Well, at least this is better than the last time we heard from her.
