Sergio Ramos is something of a hero at Real Madrid, as his last-ditch header helped his club achieve Champions League glory at the weekend. But whether that means a fan was right to vote for him as president of Egypt is another question.

A picture of one person spoiling his or her ballot at the ongoing Egyptian presidential elections has surfaced.

On top of the candidates is written "#halamadrid," the chant of support for the side in Spanish.

Underneath, the note continues in Arabic: "Sergio Ramos for president."
