Cristiano Ronaldo warned by UK Police
Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has been cautioned by the police after angrily smashing an autistic boy’s phone to the floor.
The incident happened after the Red Devils lost 1-0 at Everton last season.
Ronaldo appeared to hit Jacob Harding’s hand as he left the pitch moments after the defeat.
He later apologised to the 14-year-old, but was interviewed by police under caution in relation to an alleged assault and criminal damage.
A statement by Merseyside Police on Wednesday, said: “We can confirm that a 37-year-old man voluntarily attended and was interviewed under caution in relation to an allegation of assault and criminal damage. The allegation relates to an incident following the Everton v Manchester United football match at Goodison Park on Saturday 9 April.
“The matter has been dealt with by way of conditional caution. The matter has now concluded.”
It is understood the 37-year-old has agreed to pay compensation to Harding.
