Euro 2016; Frustrated Cristiano Ronaldo Throws Journalist's Mic Into A Lake. See Photos

It has been a tournament to forget so far for Cristiano Ronaldo, with his struggles on the pitch well-documented, yet he is still managing to produce memorable moments away from the field of play.
The Portugal captain has had a miserable two games so far, and seemed to be showing the strain of his faltering performances when he reacted badly to a television reporter’s question by throwing his microphone into a nearby river. The reporter had approached him to ask him about Portugal’s crunch match with Hungary on Wednesday. The reporter said: “Ronaldo, are you prepared for this game today?”, to which the three-time Ballon d’Or winner said nothing, wrestled the microphone from his grasp and chucked it into the water. The reporter is then quickly ushered away by the swathes of security surrounding the player. Portugal could face England if they finish second in Group F.
