He may have been on the receiving end of a defeat but Cristiano Ronaldo seems more than relaxed in his latest tweet.
Ronaldo looked on as his side suffered defeat for the first time this season against Sevilla on Sunday. This happened after he had put Los Merengues a goal up through a converted spot-kick and simultaneously equaled Hugo Sanchez’s record of scoring the most La Liga penalties.
A late own-goal by Sergio Ramos and Jovetic’s curled effort from long-range denied Zidane’s men a record-extending 41-game unbeaten run with just five minutes to go. Sucks right? Every good thing indeed comes to an end, eventually!
As a player and an avid football fan, Cristiano Ronaldo took to Twitter to brighten up the day of Madridistas who may be down due to Sunday’s disappointing result. The 31-year old posted a selfie of himself smiling in his car. The tweet captioned ‘Mood’, had accumulated over 4,500 re-tweets and close to 18,000 likes in just three hours after being posted! Talk of global influence and worldwide reach!

The impact of the snapshot may not be visible but in truth Madridistas have absolutely nothing to worry about. For starters, Real Madrid are still league leaders with 40 points after 17 games. With an outstanding game against 17th-placed Valencia on the cards, Los Blancos have a point more than second-placed Sevilla and two more than rivals Barcelona.

Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo is emphatically in the “Pichichi” race after the talisman increased his tally for the season to 12 against Sevilla. This leaves the ex-Manchester United man just two goals behind joint topscorers Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

And finally, another penalty conversion will make the 31-year-old Portuguese striker La Liga’s all-time player with the most penalties scored. Real Madrid may have lost the battle against Sevilla but make no mistake: the war is definitely not over. So to all Madridistas, smile and look at the bigger picture!
