Ronaldo bagged a brace on Tuesday night for Al Nassr.

A French commentator joined Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration when he mimicked the forward’s now famous ‘SIIIUUU’ as the Portugal captain scored for Al-Nassr in their 5-0 thrashing of Al-Adalah on Tuesday.

Ronaldo opened the scoring via the penalty spot after 40 minutes for his 10th goal in nine matches for his new club and as it has become his tradition, sprinted to the corner flag to celebrate.

As if to join in the celebrations, the French commentator for RMC Sport, who were live streaming the game on their Twitch channel, mimicked Ronaldo's famous ‘SIIIUUU’ on air as the former Real Madrid forward celebrated with his teammates.

Ronaldo would later grab his brace when he scored his team’s third goal in the 66th minute, the strike coming after Brazilian Talisca had made it 2-0, 10 minutes after the break before he also added his second and Al-Nassr’s fourth in the 78th minute.

Ayman Yahya completed the rout deep in time added on as the Saudi giants made it three straight wins in all competitions, while remaining second on the standings on 52 points from 22 matches, one behind leaders Al-Ittihad.

Ronaldo has made the ‘SIIIUUU’ the most iconic celebration in world football given how he rolls his finger in the air, follows it up with a semi-circular jump, and roars ‘SIIIUUU’.

A number of players, both young and old, have also joined the fray in recent years, showing just how influential the former Manchester United forward is on the game.

The 38-year-old has hit the ground running since joining Al-Nassr, having scored 11 goals in nine games after switching to Saudi Arabia in January.
