Ronaldo reacted by jumping the barrier to check up on the woman, who was lying flat on her back and looked to be in some pain.

The steward was given a once-over from medical staff but seemed to be OK following the accident.

Ronaldo’s shooting got better on Tuesday night as he opened the scoring for Manchester United in their Champions League group game with Young Boys.

The forward latched onto the end of a sensational Bruno Fernandes ball to slot home.

But Manchester United’s game got more difficult when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card.

The right-back was late to a challenge that left Young Boys star Christopher Martins writhing around in pain.

Diogo Dalot replaced Jadon Sancho as a result of the red card, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to settle his side down.

It was a memorable night at Anfield as the Reds sealed a 3-2 comeback victory over the Italians.

Trent Alexander-Arnold helped fire the Reds in front as his deflected effort, which went down as a Fikayo Tomori own goal, gave them a well-deserved lead.

But after Mohamed Salah failed to convert a spot-kick to double their advantage, the Serie A side were somehow in the lead at halftime after a quickfire double from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz.
