Cristiano Ronaldo whacked the ball directly into his Juventus colleague Sami Khedira’s face, knocking him to the floor during a 0-3 win at Sassuolo on Sunday.
Both players scored in the Serie A clash at the Mapei Stadium but one attacking move came to an abrupt end when Ronaldo inexplicably fired a pass towards his teammate’s head.

The German international midfielder immediately collapsed onto the grass after being hit by quite some force in the 61st minute.
What could have been a shot aimed in the wrong direction bounced off Khedira and out of play behind the goal from outside the penalty area.
THE highlight of today’s game was certainly Ronaldo taking Khedira down and then laughing at it 😂 Forza Cristiano! pic.twitter.com/RVrWqVkpER

A smiling Ronaldo walked over to him as he lay on his back holding his face.
Friends again after the game, Khedira tweeted “thanks for the headache”.
