Real Madrid captain Ramos is on honeymoon with his TV presenter wife Pilar Rubio and the couple have now touched down in Egypt to a hero’s welcome.
Local media report Ramos was labelled the “dirtiest defender in the world” by Egyptian fans after his challenge with Mohamed Salah saw the Liverpool star taken off the pitch in the 2018 Champions League final with a dislocated shoulder.
However, in the video Ramos can be seen being welcomed with a red carpet and the real Madrid anthem ‘Hala Madrid Y Nada Mas’ is playing through the loudspeakers.
