A pitch invasion by moths marked the start of the Euro 2016 final in Paris.
As Portugal and France prepared to take the field, the floodlights attracted thousands of insects.
But they were also attracted to a star.
An Iceland fan suggested that the swarm was divine retribution against Ronaldo for insulting their team.
Cristiano</a> getting humiliated by a moth. Thats what you get for talking smack about Iceland ;-) <a href="https://t.co/fK431u8ILb">pic.twitter.com/fK431u8ILb</a></p>— Gissur Simonarson CN (GissiSim) 10. Juli 2016
Or was it the ghost of Messi, taunting his rival?

And it wasn’t just on the pitch.
The omen for Ronaldo was not good, however, as his match ended with injury after just 24 minutes.
