Manchester United hitman Cristiano Ronaldo accidentally knocked out a steward after taking a shot while training ahead of the Red Devils' clash against Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The Portuguese forward shot the ball wide and the ball hit a steward standing on the sideline. The impact of the shot from Ronaldo saw the steward fall straight to the ground.

As other stewards gathered around to check on her, Ronaldo himself immediately went over to check if she was fine.

After knowing she was fine, Ronaldo ran back onto the pitch. Then after the final whistle, the former Juventus man was seen giving her his jersey as a gesture of apology for the earlier shot.

Ronaldo scored the opening goal on the night for the Red Devils against Young Boys courtesy of an incredible assist from Bruno Fernandes.

The goal meant that Ronaldo has now scored three goals in his first two games of hi Manchester United return. The Portuguese scored a brace on his second debut at Old Trafford against Newcastle United on Saturday.

After playing for the Red Devils in their first Champions League game, Ronaldo also got level with Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas after making his 177th appearance in Europe's top league competition.

Earlier this month, Ronaldo also became the leading international goalscorer of all time.
