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.
Just realize that there's a lot of buzz around my #cr7underwear collection for kids.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) October 22, 2013
Wrong phrases out of the contest can be tricky, especially for the ones not paying attention.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) October 22, 2013
