Cristiano Ronaldo addresses 'underwear gaffe' and deletes Tweet

Cristiano Ronaldo Goal

Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has taken to Twitter to clear up any controversy.

Cristiano Ronaldo caused an unfortunate guffawing of laughter on Tuesday afternoon with a tweet about judging an underwear competition.

His turn of phrase to thank those of his 22 million followers who submitted entries came across a bit 'Carry On', so much so that he ended up deleting it a few hours later.

It was retweeted by thousands, including Talksport pundit Stan Collymore, meaning it still remains visible on Twitter.

It seems later on he realised the unfortunate nature of his phrasing.

Oops.
