Watch: Ronaldo's Selfless Act After Being Awarded Penalty Stuns Internet

One of the most ruthless footballers in front of the goal, Cristiano Ronaldo won the internet with his noble act on the field on Monday. With his side Al-Nassr up against Persepolis in the Asian Champions League, Ronaldo convinced the referee to wave off his own penalty decision, leaving fans on social media stunned. The Portuguese footballer went down in the penalty box, prompting the referee to award a penalty to his Saudi Arabian club. But, Ronaldo immediately went to the official and asked him to reverse his decision.

Al Nassr had a claim for a penalty denied after Ronaldo looked to have been tripped in the visitors' area. However, the Portugal forward admitted to the referee that it was not foul, with the official deciding to cancel the penalty after consulting VAR.
