Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best and the surely among the greatest footballers not only of this era but also in the history of the game. Ronaldo has turned out to be a sporting megastar since the last one-and-a-half years since he has turned professional. Cristiano Ronaldo has had an illustrious footballing career as he has turned out to be a huge asset for all the sides he has represented be it any club or his national team Portugal, Ronaldo has delivered whenever it mattered the most. However, CR7 has made such an impact that his name was written by a kid during a French exam for which he failed.
Believe it or not, but this is exactly what had happened. A 15-year-old student named Ahmed Nabil was appearing for his French exam two years ago. There was a question regarding various animals which also included a goat and that is where Nabil decided to get creative and wrote Cristiano Ronaldo. In case if you have not understood why the student had written the Portuguese sensation's name on the photo of a goat, that is because there is a sporting term used as 'GOAT' which means 'Greatest Of All Time'.
It made its presence felt on social media as well.
In the same paper, the student had also written the name of Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil in one of his answers.
Speaking to a sports publication, Ahmed Nabil said that when he had appeared for the French exam a couple of years back, it was personally a very hard test and in one of the section he had to write the meaning of every animal which was shown in French. Nabil added that he could not recollect what a goat was called in French. Therefore, he thought about being creative and also make a couple of his mates laugh instead of leaving the question blank.
