A woman who was hit by a wayward Cristiano Ronaldo shot asked the Portuguese forward if she had died.

Marisa Nobile was hit during the warmup to Manchester United's UEFA Champions League clash against Young Boys on Tuesday.

She collapsed to the floor and Ronaldo rushed over to check she was okay, while medical professionals checked on her.

Speaking to German outlet Blick, the woman said she thought she had died.

"When the ball hit me on my head it was a full strike! I was gone in my head and went to the ground. Afterwards, I saw Ronaldo above me! Me 'Oh my god no, did I die?'

"Ronaldo said 'No, no. Excuse me! What's happening? Are you alright?'

The woman was given Ronaldo's shirt and wore it during the game.

"I was in great pain. My God. But then I saw Ronaldo and the headache was gone."

Nobile was given Ronaldo's shirt to make up for the accident and was pictured wearing it during the game.

Ronaldo recovered from the embarrassing affair to score in the game but was unable to prevent United losing 2-1 to the Swiss team.
