Al Nassr secured a 3-1 victory in the Saudi Pro League on Saturday with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a goal and taking out a cameraman in the process.
During the game Al Nassr were awarded a free kick just outside the box. Nearly all eyes in the stadium were on CR7 with the exception of the man operating the camera crane behind goal.
Ronaldo’s kicked went past the wall, past the goalkeeper, past the goal and right into the face of the poor guy just trying to do his job.

“Hi boss, do we do worker’s compensation for broken noses? Ronaldo broke it.”
Dodging stray balls is an on the job hazard for camera operators apparently.
Ronaldo made up for his free kick miss with a goal of his own. Sadio Mané also found the back of the net for Al Nassr on Saturday.
The best goal of the game has to go to Talisca for his insane long-range effort in the 49th minute.
