Sport's Spitting Scandals

13 of 17

Ronaldo's Rage

Cristiano Ronaldo, captain of the Portuguese national team, was unhappy with his team's performance in the 2010 World Cup. As Ronaldo walked off the field after the team’s defeat and elimination from the tournament, he spit at a nearby cameraman.

Many fans questioned the team’s choice of Ronaldo as captain after seeing video of the incident. Portugal’s coach stood by his player, saying "He is our leader. He is our captain. This is a decision that belongs to the federation and national coach. Because we did that, you have to believe we did it for the right reason and that he could do it."
