Manchester United footballer Cristiano Ronaldo left Minorca Airport today in a private jet after spending just over a day relaxing in Minorca waters, although it was not exactly a peaceful farewell to the Balearics.

According to airport sources, there was a loud argument in the VIP passenger control area at Minorca airport. The protagonist was not Ronaldo, but his two burly twin bodyguards. One of them had a splinted finger, which set off the alarm at the security check.

The security guard at the time was a woman, she informed him that he had to call a colleague, a delay that apparently did not please Cristiano’s bodyguard, who raised his voice and gesticulated violently before passing through the checkpoint without the corresponding search, despite warnings from security personnel that they were going to notify the Guardia Civil.

The bodyguard reportedly said that he had been a policeman in Portugal and that they could call whoever he wanted.
