Cristiano Ronaldo was already having a pretty terrible day when a rude French moth fluttered into his life and perched itself on his sweaty, tear-soaked face.
Jesus, moth, have some respect for one of the greatest soccer players of our time.
The tiny beast flew onto the scene after Ronaldo suffered an injury just a few minutes into the UEFA Euro 2016 final between Portugal and France. As Ronaldo sat on the field tending to his injured leg, the aggressively disrespectful moth planted its delicate legs on Ronaldo’s face, securing its place in sports history.
And because the internet is ruthless, the moth is already a meme:
I’ll be your little moth on Ronaldo’s crying face.

Does whatever a Ronaldo moth doth
Swoops in low on the man in red,
Drinks his tears, from his head,
