Cristiano Ronaldo receives hero's welcome after hat trick vs. Bayern

The FC crew discuss Real Madrid fans' treatment of Cristiano Ronaldo.

As he tends to do, Cristiano Ronaldo dragged Real Madrid through to the semifinals of the Champions League with a Herculean display against Bayern Munich in the second leg of the quarters.

Having gone behind twice on the night, Ronaldo rallied to score a hat trick at the Bernabeu as Real went on to secure a comprehensive 6-3 aggregate victory.

It's little wonder that the man was greeted like a returning hero when he eventually made his way back to the dressing room after the match.

Nice to see Ronaldo personally thank every single one of his teammates, the Real coaches, and every single member of backroom staff too.

After all, regardless of who scores the goals, football is all about collective effort.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
