Social media users widely shared an image that allegedly shows Cristiano Ronaldo’s resident card in Saudi Arabia.
Misbar investigated the circulating claim and found it to be satirical.
What Is the Story Behind Ronaldo’s Saudi Resident Card?
After conducting a reverse image search, Misbar’s team found no matching images published by any reliable sources.
After thoroughly inspecting the image, Misbar’s team found inconsistencies that suggest that image is a form of imposter content.
First of all, official documents such as visas and residence cards must have official identity photos. However, the circulating image has an unofficial photo of Ronaldo from one of his football matches.
Moreover, the image has spelling mistakes and blatant inconsistencies in fonts.
The fabricated image was originally shared satirically by internet users from the MENA region.
Although it was originally shared satirically, it has misled internet users.
