Video: Sergio Ramos rubs his nipples in honour of a shy prisoner
Real Madrid defender’s kinky celebration explained
Sergio Ramos grabbed a goal against former club Sevilla at the weekend and rolled out a rather bizarre goal celebration involving a V-sign and nipple-rubbing.
Never ones to turn down an investigative analysis of some nipple-rubbing, our pals at Dirty Tackle sought to get to the bottom of the matter and have done just that.
It turns out that Ramos recently visited Madrid’s Valdemoro prison (that’s Valdemoro, beginning with the same ‘V’ as the start of the celebration) to put the inmates through their paces. He signed autographs for them, including one prisoner who wanted his chest signed. But when it came to showing off the autograph, the shy lag felt obliged to cover his nipple. You can see him in the short video below.
So there you have the perfectly innocent explanation for the celebration. Not, as GolTV commentator Ray Hudson suggested, because the goal had given him a nipple erection.
