Watch Cristiano Ronaldo’s annoyed reaction after getting nutmegged by Leonardo Bonucci in Juventus training

CRISTIANO RONALDO suffered a taste of his own medicine as he got nutmegged in training – and he did not look happy about it.

The Portuguese star, 34, was taking part in Juventus’ training rondo when Leonardo Bonucci cheekily poked the ball through his legs.

Centre-back Bonucci could hardly believe what he had done as his team-mates tried to hide their sniggers from their superstar pal.

But Ronaldo did not appear to take it too well, barely reacting as if trying to ignore what had happened.

He did eventually give a quick thumbs up towards the Italian defender as he carried on in the middle of the circle, trying to get the ball back.

But Twitter did not let the five-time Ballon d’Or winner get away with it.

One said: “This guy can’t even take a joke look at how upset he got.”

Another wrote: “They better not celebrate, he would throw a fit.

A third added: “lmao he pretended like nothing happened.”

And finally one user simply tweeted the moment Exeter City defender Scott Hiley brilliantly embarrassed Ronaldo way back in January 2005 with a drag back and naughty nutmeg on the then-Manchester United winger.

Ronaldo and his Juventus side take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League tonight.

The Portugal international missed Saturday’s comeback win over Atalanta.

He had struggled with a knee injury before meeting up with his countryman for the Euro 2020 qualifiers, scoring four in two games to take his tally to 99.

An alleged row with Juve boss Maurizio Sarri may also have contributed to his absence.

Sarri hauled Ronaldo off early in matches twice within a week and there were reports of an angry exchange.

The pair were pictured talking in training yesterday but there were no smiles to be seen, although the ex-Chelsea boss confirmed there is no rift.

He said: “My relationship with Cristiano is good.

“If a player who has won so much is angry about being substituted it means he still has a lot of motivation and this is something positive.

“It is 25 years I have seen players get angry over substitutions.”

So Ronaldo looks on course to put all of that to bed by returning for the Old Lady.

And he will be desperate to score his 26th goal against his ongoing rivals, adding to the hat-trick he smashed past Diego Simeone’s side in the Champions League last season.
