Cristiano Ronaldo threw a strop after he was ruthlessly taunted with Lionel Messi chants before, during and after Al-Nassr's 1-0 loss to Al-Ittihad.
Captain Ronaldo was unable to help his side as they suffered just their second league defeat of the season away to their title rivals, who climbed above them to the top of the table as a result.
It was also a frustrating game on a personal level for the 38-year-old, as the home support just wouldn't stop chanting Messi's name at him. Some even brought the Argentina World Cup winner's shirt with them to hold up in the stands.

And come the full-time whistle it was all too much for Ronaldo, who ripped off his armband and threw it to the floor before booting a pile of water bottles as he made his way off the pitch.
He was slammed for his actions by footy fans with one tweeting: "Ronaldo is such a man child, my goat would never do such disgraceful things."
A second wrote: "A 38-year-old man still has a temper of a 12-year-old." And a third echoed: "Look how mad he is, like a little kid."
Is Ronaldo a poor captain? Let us know in the comments section.
"They made the mentality monster mentally ill," joked a fourth, while a fifth added: "He has anger issues."
A sixth claimed: "Even he knows that the non-existent debate that he and his fans created is over now. That's why he is always so frustrated. Why can't his fans shut up and accept it."
To add insult to injury for Ronaldo, Al-Ittihad's social media team posted a clip of him losing a duel during the match and captioned it: "Where is Ronaldo?"
Al-Nassr have 10 games left in the Saudi Pro League to try and beat them to winning the title. They also have a King Cup quarter-final against Abha to contend with next Tuesday (March 14).
