Cristiano Ronaldo’s “siuu” celebration is one of the most iconic in sports. The Portuguese superstar first performed the celebration in 2013, after scoring a goal for Real Madrid against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League.
Since then, he has done it countless times, and it has become an important part of his game.
The “Siu” celebration is simple yet effective as Ronaldo runs towards the goal, jumps into the air, and does a mid-air pirouette. As he lands, he shouts “Si!”

Ever since, this celebration has been copied by many other players and individuals across the globe.
Now speaking on it, Ronaldo in a chat with LiveScore, for whom he is an official global brand ambassador, said, “It seems to have grown into its own global phenomenon – and I love when I see other players doing it, or people send me videos of people in other sports doing it or little kids doing it – it’s great. It means yes – very simple but meaning it strongly!”

Ronaldo had also spoken about it earlier where he said: “I started to say ‘si’, it’s like ‘yes’, when I was in Real Madrid. I was in the USA and we played against Chelsea and I don’t know where this is coming from, the celebration,” he said. “I just scored the goal and it just came out. It was just natural, to be honest. Since that, I started to do it more often and I feel like the supporters and the fans see it and they’re like ‘Cristiano, siiiiiiuuuu’. I’m like ‘wow! People are reminded of me because of it!’ So it’s good, and I’ll continue doing it like that.”
