Cristiano Ronaldo has come under the spotlight once again for his latest social media activity. The Manchester United ace has taken to Instagram to share his first post since he mourned the demise of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Ronaldo posted a picture with controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson, calling his his ‘friend’ on Instagram. Peterson has been much maligned on social media for a number of his divisive views.

He has some strong views regarding masculinity and the 60-year-old has previously described himself as a ‘professor against political correctness.’
