The football icon was in attendance for the fight on Saturday night

Footage has emerged showing Cristiano Ronaldo looking stunned as Oleksandr Usyk beat Tyson Fury on Saturday night.

Usyk won the bout at the Kingdom Arena on points to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, stunning Fury in the process.

Ronaldo was ringside for the fight, with the Al-Nassr footballer sitting alongside Anthony Joshua.

And footage has emerged showing the 39-year-old looking stunned as the action unfolded, with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star seen covering his mouth in shock.

Ronaldo's reaction wasn't the only one picked up.

Fury's oldest son, Prince John James Fury, was seen anxiously rooting for his father during the bout.

Tommy Fury, Tyson's half-brother, also looked nervous - with the Love Island winner seen grimacing.

And David Haye was also clearly blown away by what he was watching, with the former boxing star working as a pundit.

Some have claimed Fury will retire in the wake of his defeat to Usyk, despite agreeing to a rematch with the Ukrainian.

Yet the Briton's promoter, Frank Warren, has revealed he WILL fight Usyk for a second time - with that showdown widely expected to take place in October.

"He’s back here," the 74-year-old told talkSPORT.

“He’s recuperating and his mood is that he wants the rematch.

"That is already signed for so that will happen.”

Regarding Ronaldo, the veteran was named in Portugal's squad for Euro 2024 on Tuesday.

And his inclusion in the squad means the veteran has broken yet another record.

Ronaldo is the first player to be named in six squads for the European Championships, having first appeared in the competition all the way back in 2004.

Portugal lost to Greece in the final that year, with Ronaldo crying on the pitch in the immediate aftermath of the clash.

They experienced heartache four years later, too, with Germany beating them in the quarter-finals.

At Euro 2012, Ronaldo and Portugal crashed out in the semi-finals after a dramatic penalty shootout in Ukraine.

Euro 2016 was the crowning moment of Ronaldo's international career, however, with Portugal beating France in the final to win the competition.

Yet Portugal were unable to defend their crown at Euro 2020, with Belgium beating them 1-0 in the round of 16.

Ronaldo reacted to being named in the squad by uploading a post on Instagram, with a caption reading: "Proud to be back representing @portugal at Euro. Let's go with it!"

And football fans have congratulated the football legend for his latest achievement.

"Too strong," were the words of one user.
