It was made better just minutes later when the Real Madrid man leaped to net a header - that was immediately ruled out for offside.
The schadenfreude was undeniable.

Raucous cheering in a square in Bordeaux as Ronaldo misses.

Ronaldo misses penalty. Paris bar in which I'm watching erupts in cheers and laughter.
