Real Madrid beat Osasuna 2-0 in the Copa del Rey. Cristiano Ronaldo tried to make it 3-0 by utilizing his ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but in the process he accidentally kneed Karim Benzema in the back of the head (Benzema is six feet tall, by the way...and Ronaldo got his knees up to head level).
The collision left Benzema, who opened the scoring in the 19th minute, in a bit of pain, but Ronaldo helped him back to his feet.
Regardless of Benzema's misfortune, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku was still very impressed with Ronaldo's high jump as he watched from home. He posted a screencap of the moment on Instagram and wrote:
This aint serious! Have you seen Cristiano Ronaldo's leap!!! I've seen people jump but this is not real. This is a proof that when you work hard everything is possible #AbsolutePro #Beast #CR7
You can work really hard and still not be able to jump like that, though. Ronaldo is just on another level. One that is about the same height as Karim Benzema.
