Real Madrid was taking on Atletico Madrid in Copa del Rey action on Tuesday. Real came into the game with a lead and extended it with two early penalty kicks from superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Atletico Madrid fans weren’t thrilled and one fan pegged Ronaldo in the head with a yellow lighter. It looks like Sergio Ramos is chucking at first until the lighter falls back into view after ricocheting off his head.

Here is a still shot of the lighter en route to Ronaldo’s head.

It is in pretty poor taste of the Atletico fans, they had a huge deficit coming into the game and failed to score any goals.
