Real Madrid beat Cordoba 2–1 despite being reduced to 10 men when Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off in the 82nd minute after having a casually insane meltdown. Here’s how it played out…

First, Ronaldo hit a Cordoba player in the face and got away with it.

Then he kicked a different Cordoba player in the back of the legs and got sent off for it.

He acted like he wasn’t bothered by this.

At all.

And that’s how you play it cool after completely losing yours. Cristiano did still apologize to Edimar, the player he kicked, via Twitter after the match, though. “I apologize to all and especially Edimar for my reckless act in the match today,” he wrote.
