Portuguese TV station to auction recovered mic that Ronaldo angrily threw in lake
Portugal’s captain was walking with his teammates before their match against Hungary when he didn’t take kindly to an interruption from a reporter from Portuguese station CMTV.
Ronaldo grabbed the mic from reporter Diogo Torres, who was working for CMTV, a station with which Ronaldo has a long-running feud, and threw it in the lake.
CMTV has confirmed that the roving mic has now been recovered by divers Paulo Martins and Antonio Bessone Basto and will be auctioned off.
