Yesterday Portugal won the UEFA Euro 2016 by beating host country and favorite France, 1-0 after extra time. This is Portugal's first Euro tournament victory.
Cristiano Ronaldo injured his left knee and carried off the pitch in the 25th minute.
Ronaldo's nonverbal displays are very much worth nuancing.
When either emotional pain or physical pain of significance are present, particularly when the onset is very recent - each will be accompanied by a Central Forehead Contraction (CFC). Of course in this moment Cristiano Ronaldo is suffering from both sources of pain.
We can clearly see Ronaldo's Inward Lip Roll (ILR) - which is very common during attempts at emotional suppression. A Jaw Jut, which is also seen with suppression of tears is present in this moment as well - along with chin dimpling. Dramatic mid-facial tension, which is a rarely discussed nonverbal tell is yet another component of this cluster - and is very pronounced here on Ronaldo.
