The Sun is a highly unpopular newspaper and publication, to say the least. They’ve already drawn the wrath of Liverpool supporters after Hillsborough but other readers and football followers don’t think too highly of the Sun, nor those working for them.
Earlier today, the Sun ran a story of how they interviewed Portugal and Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, with the defending Ballon D’Or winner stating how he dedicates every goal to his father, who passed away when the player was just 22. The story can be found here, although it may be removed by the time you’ve read this. Now we haven’t read the story as yet, since the Sun requires you to pay for access to their content (and that’s the last thing we’ll want to do); but Cristiano Ronaldo has now gone on to deny any involvement in a Sun interview via his Twitter account, stating that it never took place. (Click on the date below to see the original tweet).
Ronaldo is arguably the best footballer in the world and has a massive following – he has 81.9 million followers on Twitter and 175.9 million followers on Instagram (at time of writing). He regularly updates his profiles with new posts. If you follow Ronaldo on Instagram then you might want to use this instagram story viewer to download his stories. This means you can continue to watch them after the 24 hours that they are live. Well, it sounds like the Sun has upset somebody they really wouldn’t want to upset…
Today, the Sun publishes an interview with me that I never gave. So its content is pure fiction.
