Cristiano Ronaldo faces Iranian justice. At least that’s what the local press says. The Portuguese was in the country as part of an official match, played with Al-Nassr against Persepolis, as part of the AFC Champions League. CR7 took the opportunity to meet a graphic artist suffering from semi-paralysis, Fatima Hammami.
The latter presented him with two beautiful works, and had a friendly moment with the star. But Cristiano Ronaldo hugged his host before kissing him on the head. This does not happen at all in Iran. Consequently, the lawyers filed a complaint and the potential punishment would be staggering, as the court could impose 99 lashes on the Portuguese player, once he sets foot on Iranian soil again. The Iranian embassy in Spain remains cautious, saying it is not aware of any complaints at this stage.
According to national media, Cristiano Ronaldo is required to repent, as his act is considered adultery, otherwise he will be sentenced to these lashes. Amazing new condition.
