Manchester United's forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has tendered an apology for smashing a fan's mobile phone after his side's 1-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park.

Anthony Gordon's deflected strike in the 27th minute dealt United a big blow in the quest for a top-four finish.

Ronaldo whose Man Utd teammates struggled and failed to take anything meaningful from the game stormed down the tunnel in anger after the game.

However, the Portuguese star appeared to smash a fan's mobile phone in the process.

The video soon went viral after the match, prompting United to state that they were aware of the incident and are looking into it, according to Sky Sports.

However, the 37-year-old has now apologised to the fan for the outburst and invited the fans to a game at Old Trafford.

"It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing.

"Nevertheless, we always have to be respectful, patient and set the example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.

"I would like to apologize for my outburst and, if possible, I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair play and sportsmanship," he wrote.
