Euro 2016 – Cristiano Ronaldo vs The Moth

As an entomologist and a soccer fan, I can already say that this is probably going to be my favourite story of the year. Like millions around the world, I watched the France vs Portugal final of the Euro soccer tournament yesterday, and couldn’t help but notice  the moths that from time to time flew across the face of the cameras. Then, as Cristiano Ronaldo sat injured on the grass, he was attacked by a moth that was presumably a France supporter. 

The moth has become internet famous, of course. You can read more on the moth that briefly upstaged one of the world’s top athletes here.
