A Saudi lawyer, Nouf bin Ahmed, has vowed to file a complaint against Cristiano Ronaldo after the player appeared to grab his genitals while walking off the pitch on Tuesday.
The incident happened after Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr suffered a 2-0 defeat to Odion Ighalo’s Al-Hilal on Tuesday night.
Ronaldo’s action was deemed as an insulting gesture toward fans after his team’s 2-0.
A video released on social media seemed to show the 38-year-old grabbing his crotch as he left the pitch in response to fans chanting the name of his rival Lionel Messi, Daily Mail reports.
While reacting, Ahmed said Ronaldo should be punished for his “crime of public indecency.
According to her, the crime entails arrest and deportation if committed by a foreigner.
“It is considered a crime of public dishonour, and it is one of the crimes that entail arrest and deportation if committed by a foreigner,” Ahmed said on Twitter, as she vowed to file a complaint to the Saudi Prosecutor’s Office for his ‘crime of public indecency’.
While at the end of the video, he appears to look up toward the chanting fans with a grin on his face.
A second video on social media shows him doing the same thing just after crossing the touchline.
Earlier in the game, Ronaldo made headlines after bringing down an opponent in a chokehold.
