Cristiano Ronaldo Caught Urinating In Public By Police, Severely Reprimanded

Cristiano Ronaldo found himself in a spot of trouble in the first few days after the end of the Spanish soccer season after he was caught urinating in public by bemused police officers.

The Real Madrid forward has reportedly been holidaying in Saint Tropez over the last few days, ever since La Liga came to an end. And while enjoying a night out in the luxurious region, the Portuguese forward was pictured relieving himself behind a parked Mercedes car after he'd been out partying with friends.

However, it wasn't just the eagle-eyed paparazzi who caught the soccer ace red-handed, because, according to the Mirror, the police also witnessed the entire ordeal, too. Ronaldo decided to take his impromptu toilet break after leaving Le Quai at 4 a.m. on Sunday night/Monday morning.

Even though Ronaldo's pals tried to block security guards from seeing his disgusting antics, local police soon caught wind of his actions and approached the current Ballon d'Or holder. They then gave him a severe reprimand, and Ronaldo returned to his hotel.

Ronaldo has certainly been making the most of his freedom ever since the season came to an end. Not only did he recently make a trip to watch the Monaco Grand Prix just a few hours after he'd played his last competitive game of the season for Real Madrid, an encounter that he once again scored a hat-trick in, but he was also spotted on Philip Green's yacht on Sunday, too.

Cristiano Ronaldo had plenty of reasons to celebrate, too. On Monday, it was also confirmed that he'd won the European Golden Shoe for a record fourth time, thanks to the 48 goals that he's scored in a scintillating season, from just 35 appearances. He beat his long-term rival, Lionel Messi, to the accolade. The Barcelona forward managed to notch 43 goals from just 38 appearances.

However, despite this success, Ronaldo's campaign has ultimately been mired in disappointment. Not only did his Real Madrid side fail to claim any silverware, but Barcelona are currently on course for the treble. They've already claimed the La Liga and Copa Del Rey, and they will play Juventus in the European Cup final on Saturday.

Ronaldo is also believed to be hugely upset at the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti as Real Madrid manager. Despite leading Real Madrid to the 10th European Cup in their history last season, Ancelotti has since been sacked and is set to be replaced by Rafa Benitez in the coming weeks -- an appointment that Ronaldo is widely thought to be apoplectic at.
