WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo throws the American football with the Jets

He’s devastatingly-handsome, and even better with his feet.

The world, however, may’ve found Cristiano Ronaldo’s weakness on Tuesday: throwing an American football.

Dude (understandably) looks awkward.

Ronaldo and Portugal spent their training session at the New York Jets facility, where they mingled with players like former Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Nelson.

And below is not the prettiest video proof you’ll ever see, though I hear the Jets immediately called him “the best option we have for 2014.”

    If Nelson was a real American he would sweep the leg!

    He also decided not to buy the Jets.

    Hey, Tebow couldn’t throw either. And he got on the field for the Jets.
