Al-Hilal secured a comfortable 2-0 victory over their arch-rivals Al-Nassr in the Riyadh Seasons Cup final, with goals coming from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Aldawsari.
Al-Nassr’s star player Cristiano Ronaldo, known for his competitive spirit, was visibly frustrated after the defeat.
In a video shared by a fan on the social media platform X, Ronaldo appeared furious during the awards ceremony, particularly when Milinkovic-Savic was announced as the finals MVP.
Expressing his anger, Ronaldo tossed his runners-up medal into the crowd before heading to the tunnel with his teammates.
Another clip shows his walking away furiously as Al-Hilal players applauded the Al Nassr players.

While Ronaldo’s competitive drive is well-known and has contributed to his success, such reactions can sometimes cast him in a negative light, portraying him as a poor loser.
