Cristiano Ronaldo cast a pall over Portugal's first training session here ahead of Euro 2008 as he left the field with a bandaged ankle, an AFP photographer on the scene reported.

The Manchester United striker walked off the pitch holding his right boot and with what appeared to be ice packs wrapped around his right ankle, five minutes before the end of the team's first training session at Neuchatel, their base for the competition.

The player did not seem in pain and walked off the pitch unaided and without any signs of hobbling, the photographer said.

Portugal will play the second game of the championship this Saturday in a hotly-anticipated clash against Turkey at 10.45 pm (2045 GMT).
