Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronaldo

Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronaldo may be punished for getting too cosy with a fan if he ever returns to Iran.

According to Rouydad24, the Al-Nassr forward will face 99 lashes.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner met up with his fan, artist Fatima while travelling to Iran for an Asian Champions League match against local team Persepolis in September.

Ronaldo hugged and kissed the girl, which is considered a severe violation of Iranian law when outside of matrimony.

However, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star has not yet been formally charged.

Ronaldo is currently with the Portugal national team as they prepare to take on Slovakia and Bosnia & Herzegovina in EURO qualifiers on Friday and Monday, respectively.
