Ronaldo in racism row over "black chocolate" comment

CONTROVERSY: Cristiano Ronaldo

CRISTIANO RONALDO has caused controversy after posting an image of himself and a fellow Portuguese footballer on Instagram.

The Real Madrid star showed off his bod next to Jose Semedo with the caption: “Perfect Match Black And White chocolate" [SIC].

While the caption may have been tongue-in-cheek, many criticised Ronaldo and claimed the post was "racist'.

One fan pointed out: “Isn’t it supposed to be dark chocolate, not black?” while another defended the post, stating: "As usual, it's always white liberals who get angry on behalf of black pple. Get a life! There's nothing racist about that post!"

The controversial caption was posted two days after the father-of-three uploaded a picture of his newborn twins on Instagram captioned: “So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of my life”.

The twins are rumoured to have been named Eva and Mateo, but this has yet to be confirmed.
