Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo pretended to slap the hands of fans as he entered the Allianz Stadium ahead of a clash with Inter Milan, making light of the supporter ban due to coronavirus concerns in the country.

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused a significant number of deaths in Italy and the government made the decision to play all sports events in the country behind closed doors until the beginning of April.

As Ronaldo disembarked the team coach and entered the Torino ground on Sunday, he outstretched his hand as if to greet the fans who would usually have been waiting to see the players from behind the barriers.

Juventus won the Serie A clash 2-0 with the visitors reduced to ten men towards the end of the match.
