Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo was taunted by homophobic slurs on Sunday.

The incident occurred as Real Madrid faced Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.

Ronaldo, named this year by Forbes as the world's highest paid athlete, reportedly told his teammates in the locker room that midfielder Koke (real name Jorge Resurreccion Merodio) of Atletico called him a “faggot” on the field, according to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope.

For months rumors have circulated that Ronaldo is in a romantic relationship with Amsterdam-born kickboxer Badr Hari, who lives in Morocco. Photos of the friends on social media have fueled the tabloid stories.

Ronaldo reportedly responded, “A faggot, yes, but with a lot of pasta, bastard,” referring to his wealth.

According to Morocco World News, the crowd could be heard chanting “Go to Morocco” and “faggot.”
