Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has left his Muslim fans going crazy around the globe ever since he greeted them in Arabic during a live stream on his Instagram.
Interacting with his followers on Sunday, Ronaldo, in the live chat, was asked by certain Arab fans to “speak in Arabic”. He said that he did not know the language; however, he appeased his Muslim followers by greeting them with a “Salamalaikum”.
It wasn’t later that Ronaldo’s salutation took the netizens by storm.
