Watch: Pitch invader hugs and lifts Cristiano Ronaldo as brilliant Bruno Fernandes leads Portugal past Bosnia

Footage centering on five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has gone viral across social media late on Saturday.

This comes after the veteran attacker was greeted on the pitch, mid-match, by an adoring fan.

Ronaldo was back in action a short time ago, lining out for Portugal for a remarkable 199th time, in a Euro 2024 qualifying meeting with Bosnia & Herzegovina.

During the 2nd-half of proceedings at the Estadio da Luz, a member of the home crowd made his way onto the pitch, making a beeline for Ronaldo in the process.

From here, the individual in question proceeded to bow in front of the iconic frontman, hug and lift him, and, finally, showcase his own version of the famed ‘Siuuu’ celebration:

Turning attentions towards the action itself on Saturday night, Portugal, as expected, ultimately made short work of Bosnia.

Check out his brilliant headed first, and supremely-finished 2nd, below:
