Ronaldo's free kick smashes teenage boy's wrist inflicting double fracture

London, July 24 (ANI): Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo's free kick smashed a Brit fan in his wrist breaking it in two places, during a friendly match with Bournemouth.

The Sun News reports that a schoolboy aged 11, Charlie Silverwood, had gone to see his team Bournemouth host Real Madrid in a friendly match.

The 80 million pounds ex-Man United forwarded wayward 35-yard and the ball scorched into the stands breaking the boy's wrist in two places, the report added.

The youngster, from Christchurch in Dorset, said that he could see the ball coming towards him. It curled past the post and was going to hit his face so he had to block it with his hand.

The boy was so determined not to miss the action that he kept watching for the remaining 84 minutes before going to hospital where X-rays revealed his double fracture. (ANI)
