Cristiano Ronaldo is many things, both brilliant and petulant in equal measure. Already this competition he has bagged the title for throwing the biggest tantrums: one during a squad walk when he threw a reporters mic into a lake for getting into his personal space and the other for calling out Iceland's team of having a "small mentality" that won't get them anywhere after they drew with Portugal 1-1.

Then, having semi-redeemed himself with his two lifeline goals against Hungary he somehow managed to pull off what must be one of the best (or worst?) poses for memes of this competition. And don't expect them to stop anytime soon.
