Cristiano Ronaldo screams down the camera, says he had a vision that he'd be the hero, divides the world yet again

Cristiano Ronaldo can't do right for doing wrong.

The Portuguese star, who was an injury doubt in the build-up to the Champions League final, didn't have the best of games against Atletico on Saturday night but, when it mattered, he stepped up to the fifth penalty and clinched the title for Real Madrid.

Not everyone was happy about him stealing the glory though.

On RTÉ, co-commentator Ronnie Whelan sounded absolutely sickened with what had just unfolded before him.

"It was always going to be Ronaldo, wasn't it?" he said. "It's what happens. Things just happen for him that way."

And, as Ronaldo ripped off his shirt and was mobbed by his team mates, he didn't even stop to apologise to Whelan or any of his begrudging haters.

Instead, he roared down the camera lens with his trademark celebration only to add more fuel to the fire.

Amidst the euphoria, he told reporters that he knew how this night would pan out.

"I had a vision," he said.

"I knew that I would score the winning goal. I told Zizou that and to let me take the fifth and that's how it turned out."

Things just work out for him, you see - as Ronnie Whelan would tell you anyway.

He then had the audacity to post to his Twitter account after the game.

But he even admitted that penalties are a lottery.

Still, the arguments began immediately.

Almost as immediately as the shirt came off.

It wasn't for everyone though.

Glory-hunter...

Who else would you want taking it?

Love.

Hate.

Can't we all agree?
