Did Ronaldo Snub the President of Israel?

Heres the original video:.

Eurosport reported that Ronaldo and Platini shook hands earlier and that the “snub” in this video was most likely unintentional..

Heres a screenshot of the viral TikTok, which was viewed more than 5 million times within a day of its initial publishing, along with the caption: “Christian Ronaldo doesnt give his hand to the President of Israel due to the fact that he supports the Muslims.”

This video does not reveal Ronaldo snubbing the president of Israel. This video, which can be viewed at the bottom of this post, was taken in 2014, and reveals Ronaldo as he apparently snubbed Michel Platini, the then-president of the Union of European Football Associations.

This video was taken after Ronaldo and Real Madrid beat San Lorenzo for the FIFA World Championship. Genuine Madrid and Ronaldo obviously took offense to Platinis remarks (the team even released a statement).

Whether or not Ronaldo snubbed Platini is a bit subjective. This video, nevertheless, certainly does disappoint the soccer star snubbing the president of Israel in May 2021..

In May 2021, as a violent conflict between Israel and Palestine intensified, a video went viral on TikTok that apparently revealed soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo making a political statement by snubbing the president of Israel.
