On Saturday night, Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 to claim its third Champions League title in a row. And while the Spanish side ultimately deserved the win, it was Madrid defender Sergio Ramos injuring Liverpool’s key attacker, Egyptian Mohamed Salah, that sparked the biggest reaction on social media.
Salah, who is revered in his country and finished second in Egypt’s presidential election recently, is now in a race against time to be fit for next month’s FIFA World Cup.
While Ramos was dragged on social media, some users were able to find some humor in the situation, posting memes likening the Spanish defender to UFC fighters, Game of Thrones characters, and more.
