MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK] Cristiano Ronaldo's remarkable game: He scored a hat trick in Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Getafe on Tuesday and afterward sought out the fan he accidentally hit in the face with a clearance to give him a souvenir that no doubt took some of the sting out of the blow.

In the 16th minute, with the score still tied 0-0, a rare errant ball from Ronaldo hit a fan sitting in lower section of the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium right in the kisser.

Ronaldo preceded to score three goals that, while not enough to prevent Barcelona from winning the La Liga title on Wednesday, puts Ronaldo on track to beat out Lionel Messi for the La Liga scoring title, the coveted Pichichi.

    an act that the fan will be appreciatetive forever, an, also, a loyal fan from now on no doubt. Often, the simple acts in life are the most valuable, a lesson we all should rememb er..they cost so little, the rewards are great. I know I will remember this act by Ronaldo.

    Well done, I knew I picked Madrid over Barcelona for some reason. This is a class act!
