Two goals, a hug, a wink and too many medals: Cristiano Ronaldo takes the UEFA Super Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo has won many trophies over his career, but prior to Tuesday, the UEFA Super Cup was not one of them. So, as the centerpiece of what could prove to be one of the greatest collections of talent ever assembled, he played a starring role in changing that.

Ronaldo scored both goals in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Sevilla, but he also managed to squeeze in a few other events that made it one of the most Cristiano Ronaldo matches in recent memory.

First, when he was getting treated by the physio during the second half, a pitch invader attempted to cure all that ailed him with a hug.

After the match, as he made his way up the stairs at Cardiff City Stadium, he gave a couple of female fans his signature wink. 


And finally, Michel Platini tried to give him two winner's medals before Sir Alex Ferugson appeared to surprise him with the Man of the Match award. 

Now if all of this happened while he wasn't wearing a shirt, this truly would have been his ultimate dream match.
