Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back at an alleged homophobic attack by saying he was “a faggot with a lot of money, shithead”.

The Real Madrid striker was responding to Atletico Madrid player Koke who allegedly called him “a faggot”.

Spanish radio revealed the exchanged occurred during Saturday’s derby between the two teams where Real Madrid won three-nil, thanks to a hat-trick scored by Ronaldo.

Koke refused to comment on the alleged discussion after the game.hi-res-cccbd6d200d1c06bdda52469b0046413_crop_north

Ronaldo was given a yellow card for his part in the altercation and had not received one in any of the previous 12 meetings with Atletico Madrid.

This won’t be the first time the soccer star has received homophobic abuse. In April, a Spanish LGBT rights group complained over abuse the star received in a game against Barcelona.
