The story, as I’m sure you’re aware, is around seven months old and was all over the internet back in January – but new footage of Cristiano Ronaldo’s ventures as a homeless man have just been released.
The Real Madrid number 7 uploaded the finished product to his Facebook page last night and has almost racked up 20 million views in a very short space of time. And it’s no surprise, it’s brilliant for many reasons.
The video shows CR7 being disguised as a homeless man before taking to the streets of Madrid (with a small white dog) to show off and have a kickabout with unsuspecting passers-by. He plays one-two football with older men, displays his keepy up ability and even asks one passing brunette for her number – we assume she was horrified once she realised who it was.
Ronny finally breaks his character in typical Cristiano fashion when he unveiled himself to the little lad who stopped for a kickabout with him. He quickly signs the ball before being mobbed my smartphones, then makes a swift exit. Fair play, mate, now try that in Manchester, I’m sure the reactions will be pretty varied!
