Cristiano Ronaldo hit with lighter in head during Copa del Rey match (GIF)

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.
