Portuguese skipper Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked the Anfield crowd for their show of compassion following the death of his newborn son.
A fan-led minute’s applause was held in the seventh minute during Tuesday’s Premier League game between Liverpool and Manchester United, which Ronaldo missed following his son’s death.
The Reds triumphed 4-0 thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, who bagged a brace, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane.
And reacting to the show of support Ronaldo wrote on Instagram: “One world… One sport… One global family… Thanks, Anfield. Me and my family will never forget this moment of respect and compassion.”
Ronaldo added three hands-praying emojis alongside a video of the Anfield crowd applauding in the seventh minute – the Portuguese star’s number.
The 37-year-old, who has four older children, announced last October that he and his partner Georgina Rodriguez were expecting twins. Their baby girl survived.
