Ronaldo arrives in Saudi, says he’s come to South Africa

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo has just completed a move to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr but made a slip up during his official presentation in Riyadh when mistakenly saying he had “come to South Africa.” Perhaps the Portugal great was disorientated by the whirlwind nature of his arrival at his new club which saw him fly out to Saudi on Monday night before undergoing a medical on Tuesday morning and then being greeted by thousands of cheering fans at Al Nassr’s Mrsool Park stadium.
