Cristiano Ronaldo's special celebration after scoring a stunner against Al Shabaab last night in their Saudi Pro League clash is going viral on social media.
The ace footballer delighted Al Nassr teammates and fans by performing the Sujood bow - the act of low bowing or prostration to Allah facing the Kabba at Mecca - ahead of his trademark 'Siiuuu' celebration.
Al Nassr scripted the thrilling come-from-behind win to put Al Ittihad's title celebrations on hold.

Two down within 40 minutes into the game, Talisca and Abdel-Rahman Ghareeb revived hopes for Al Nassr by levelling the score by the 51st minute.
Ronaldo then completed the comeback win with a curling shot from just from outside the box in the 59th minute and was immediately mobbed by his teammates.
The Portuguese striker then broke away and prostrated himself with his head on the turf in an imitation of the pose Muslims adopt for prayer.
Al Ittihad remain top of the league with 66 points, three ahead of Al Nassr and hold the advantage in the head-to-head between the two clubs, the first tiebreaker if they finish level on points.
Al Nassr's next game is against Ettifaq on May 27 (Saturday) at 9pm (Bahrain time).
