Cristiano Ronaldo has hilariously awkward reaction when Conor McGregor sits next to him

The two sport stars crossed paths in Saudi Arabia over the weekend.

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo had an hilariously awkward reaction on Saturday (23 December) as Conor McGregor sat next to them.

The sporting icons are arguably the best ever produced in their field of play, so it's always nice when their paths end up crossing.

The duo were pictured together back in October as Tyson Fury fought, and they have now been spotted once more in the build-up to Christmas.

The interaction was a little awkward.

Ronaldo and McGregor were ringside to watch boxers Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia over the weekend.

While Joshua came out on top in his bout, Wilder suffered a shock defeat to Joseph Parker in the Middle East.

Fans on social media have very much been focused on events outside of the ring though, particularly the exchange between Ronaldo and McGregor.

In fact, fans can't help but poke fun at their ring-side exchange and have described the MMA star as some 'complete random' you bump into 'in the club toilets'.

In the clip, McGregor sits down next to Ronaldo and leans in towards his fellow sport star and starts chatting across him about Dmitry Bivol's fighting style.

The former UFC champion carries on speaking over Ronaldo, who eventually cracks a smile after more than a minute of chat from McGregor.

Many have since flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, to react to the hilarious reaction.

"Ronaldo knows he’s having his ear chewed off for the next 3 hours," one viewer commented.

"When you bump into a complete random in the club toilets," a second said.

"Cristiano is reconsidering all his decisions that led him to this moment," a third quipped.

While a fourth remarked: "That meme of the drunk lad shouting at that girl in the club. Same energy!"

As many make jokes about the duo's reaction, the pair actually appear to be pretty good pals.

Ronaldo posted a photo of the sporting legends to social media on Sunday (24 December), with the pair pictured laughing together.

Captioning the pic, the soccer star said: "Best caption wins!"

Of course, the internet being the internet meant that a lot more jokes were produced across social media.

"When they tell me that Messi is better than Cristiano," one said.

A second added: "Remember when they said I was the problem at Man Utd."

While another quipped: "When they say you're finished and you are about ending the year as the top scorer."
