It seems Cristiano Ronaldo has been watching his Vladimir Putin judo instructional videos over the offseason because he put those moves to use against Chivas on Wednesday night. Getting a little frustrated, Ronaldo took Patricio Araujo down with authority, earning a yellow card in the process (see the judo comparison at the end of the clip to check his form).
Of course, shortly after that Ronaldo scored a hat trick in a span of nine minutes to give Real Madrid a 3-0 win. And he did it with his collar popped.
