Without a win or a goal at Euro 2016, the Portugal star was out for a leisurely stroll with his compatriots near the team hotel in Lyon when he was approached by a journalist for comment.

The Real Madrid man is coming under increasing scrutiny, having underperformed in both his country's matches at Euro 2016.

Portugal's record appearance holder questioned Iceland's "small mentality" after the tiny islanders held it to a draw in his side's first match.

The Real Madrid star also missed a crucial penalty in a goalless stalemate against Austria. The Portugal Football Federation is yet to comment on Ronaldo's actions but it seems unlikely that he would be punished for it.
