Portuguese forward flashed a thumbs up as he moved away from the TV camera after answering a few questions.
Cristiano Ronaldo walked off camera during a post-match interview,
following his record-breaking international goal for Portugal on Wednesday.
His second-half equaliser against the Republic of Ireland made him the all-time leading men’s scorer,
at 110 career goals, and he brought his tally to 111 in stoppage time to give Portugal a 2-1 win in World Cup qualifying.
Ronaldo was not interested in spending much time with the media afterwards,
choosing instead to celebrate away from his interview.
How it happened
Ronaldo’s interview session started normally, with the forward answering questions about his record-setting effort.
“I’m very happy, not only because I beat the record but also for the special moments,
that we had, two goals at the end of the game,” Ronaldo according to Sky Sports.
“[Missing an early penalty] was just part of the game, part of the business.
Sometimes you score, sometimes you [make a] mistake. But I still believed until the end of the game.”
He didn’t have patience for another question to be asked, shuffling off camera as the reporter attempted to continue the interview.
