Ronaldo, Shakira and a bitter date with Karma

Barcelona vs Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey in 2011: Shakira mockingly laughs as Cristiano misses a clear chance. But the Madrid star had the last laugh moments later.

Ronaldo, Shakira and a bitter date with Karma

A video showing Colombian pop star Shakira reacting to Cristiano Ronaldo missing a clear chance and then his goal minutes later during the Copa del Rey Clásico final in 2011 has once again gone viral.

As the game had gone into extra time at Valencia's Mestalla stadium with the score at 0-0, Ronaldo had the perfect opportunity to score for Real Madrid but uncharacteristically drove the ball wide of the far post, which drew a mocking laugh from the wife of Gerard Piqué -- as was picked up by the TV cameras. 

Ronaldo has last laugh over Shakira in Copa Clásico

The Portuguese star was visibly frustrated by his wasted opportunity. But just five minutes later he had the last laugh, serving up a whopping dose of karma for Shakira with a monumental header that will go down as one of the best of his career.

The camera's caught the 'Hips Don't Lie' singer's reaction again, but this time the smirking laugh was replaced with a look of shocked dismay, as then Madrid-coach José Mourinho reacted with jubilant elation to his compatriot's wonder goal. 

Ronaldo's stunning headed strike was enough to secure the victory and the Copa del Rey 2011 title for Real Madrid, much to the disappointment of Barcelona fan Shakira, Piqué and the rest of the Blaugrana squad.
