Did Nike drop the ball with post about Manchester United & Real Madrid Champions League winner Ronaldo?

To celebrate Real Madrid and Ronaldo winning the Champions League Nike posted a picture of the young striker in with the title, “This boy knew”.

It was a nice post of Nike’s main star in the Champions League final, showing the dedication and belief of their star but there was one big problem.  The ex Manchester United striker was donning an adidas sweat shirt.

After the post was shared by Nike, images emerged of the young Ronaldo zoomed out to show that the grey sweat shirt he was wearing was adidas.  Not Nike.

Did Nike know about the adidas sweater and take a punt?  Maybe they just didn’t care.  Either way people were quick to spot it.

Lets see how adidas respond?
