A student failed his French exam by a single mark after he named Cristiano Ronaldo alongside a picture of a goat.
Ahmed Nabil, 15, was presented with a variety of different animals in the paper but rather than write down a sensible answer, he included a certain five-time Ballon d’Or winner in his answers.
“It was a French exam I did two years ago.” he told SPORTbible.
“For me personally, it was a very hard test and one of the sections was: write the meaning of every animal we show you but in french.
“I couldn’t remember what a goat was called in french, so I thought I’d do something creative and make a couple of my mates laugh instead of just leaving it empty.”
Nabil revealed to us that he actually failed the French exam by a single mark.
The above tweet did receive over 15,000 likes in the space of 24 hours, so that may provide a crumb of comfort as many agreed that Ronaldo is in fact, the greatest of all time.
Manchester United fan Nabil believes that is the case, although he does admit a hint of bias.
“If anyone asks me who I think is the goat is, I’ll tell him them Ronaldo but deep down I’m not that sure.” he told us.
“Sometimes I think that Messi is better but because of my bias, the former United player is the greatest.”
In the exact same exam, Nabil also mentioned Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil in his answers.
“The other blank box was a mistake by the teacher, so I thought I’d continue my “football themed” answer and write Ozil.” he said.
“When the teacher finally gave me the exam she literally had no reaction. I don’t think she even knew who Ronaldo and Ozil was, so she didn’t tell me anything afterwards.”
