Cristiano Ronaldo has shared a video of his six-year-old scoring one hell of a free kick – proving once and for all that talent can be passed on genetically.
The Real Madrid striker was filming his son, confusingly also called Cristiano Ronaldo, during a kids’ match in Spain when he captured him scoring.
Cristiano Ronaldo junior isn’t exactly on the halfway line or anything but he’s only six so this is still very impressive:
It’s a pretty good imitation of his dad’s world-renowned free-kick skills.
The video has been watched over six million times on Instagram. Mostly by me, cursing my life for not being born to a supremely talented footballer.
Although, my mum is a hairdresser so on the basis of this video alone I could probably set up my own barber shop without any training.
Obviously Cristiano Ronaldo Junior has probably had a bit of instruction from his dad, and numerous others, so I’m probably being a bit unfair on the lad’s hard work by attributing all his skills to genes.
He even has the same iconic pre-freekick stance as his famous father:
Seriously impressive stuff though. Looks like we might have another footballing dynasty on our hands for years to come.
