The Portugal vs Slovenia match was quite an exciting moment for players and fans alike. But Cristiano Ronaldo, even though he failed to score a penalty during the game, remained calm during the penalty shootout.

WHOOP, a fitness tracker company, has released a graph of the Portuguese captain's heart rate from the end of extra-time to the Seleção's penalty shoot-out victory.

We can see that after the referee's whistle, Cristiano was very nervous, which shows a heart rate of over 170 beats per minute, but he managed to get himself in order and approach the moment of his kick with composure.

When he scored, his heart rate was over 140 beats, and in the euphoria of victory, his heartbeat returned by the end of the match, but for a very pleasant occasion.
