The fierce impact of the ball saw the person crash straight to the ground.
People around quickly looked to make sure the steward was OK.
And Ronaldo himself immediately went over to check in on the prone person.
After knowing the steward was well, Ronaldo ran back onto the pitch to continue his warm-up.
And he cheered the steward up after the final whistle by giving her his jersey.

But the incident didn’t put Ronnie off his stride, as he opened the scoring in Switzerland after just 13 minutes following a sumptuous assist from Bruno Fernandes.
It was Ronaldo’s third goal in just two games for his ‘new’ club.
The legendary forward scored twice on his second debut in United’s 4-1 win against Newcastle on Saturday.
But United fell apart as they went down to ten men before conceding a last-gasp winnner.
Ronnie also moved level with Iker Casillas tonight for the most Champions League appearances in history.

And one more match sees Ronaldo move clear, with the Portugal ace already the competition’s leading all-time goalscorer.
Earlier this month, Ronnie also became the all-time leading INTERNATIONAL goalscorer too.
