Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticised after posing for a friendly picture with none other than Jordan Peterson.

For those not in the know, Peterson is the controversial psychologist who has obtained a cult following for his views.

The Canadian media personality has appeared on Joe Rogan's podcast a number of times in recent months, coming under fire for his comments on race and for denying the existence of climate.

Despite being accused of promoting racist, transphobic and misogynistic ideas, Peterson clearly has a friend in Ronaldo.

The Manchester United forward shared a picture of the two side-by-side on his Instagram page, alongside the caption: "Nice to see you my friend! #seeyousoon."

Peterson himself responded to the post, writing: "I’ve rarely met anyone who more clearly deserved what they earned. Good to meet you."

Their exchange has left more than a few fans baffled, with some taking to Twitter to criticise the footballer.

Sharing the post, one wrote: "Cristiano Ronaldo with Jordan Peterson, the guy who said feminists have 'an unconscious wish for brutal male domination'."

Another commented: "Cristiano Ronaldo posting with Jordan f**king Peterson I didn’t think I could hate the guy anymore."

Another added: "Why is anyone even slightly surprised that someone as entitled as him thinks Peterson is great."

LADbible has contacted representatives for Ronaldo for comment.

The news came after a Nevada woman alleged that the footballer raped her in a hotel room in 2009.

The Manchester United player strongly denied the claims, previously saying in a statement: "I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me.

"Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in."

The woman lost her court bid to force Ronaldo to pay her millions of dollars more than the $375,000 (£302,000) in hush money she originally received.
