Cristiano Ronaldo is not only the best footballer in the world, the owner of the planet’s most rock hard abs and one of the wealthiest sportsmen on Earth.
As this new video proves, the Real Madrid superstar is also a top actor, a natural comedian AND a thoroughly nice chap.
In one of the most excellently executed examples of a footballer pranking the public, the Ballon D’Or winner got dressed up as a beggar and started showing off some skills.
After a lot of make-up and costume work – including fake hair, fake beard and fat suit – the world’s most recognisable footballer wanders into the busy Plaza de Callao in downtown Madrid and starts doing kick-ups.
No-one gives him a second glance. He just looks like a homeless guy trying to earn a few euros from the locals.
This goes on for quite some time. Ronaldo is out there for several hours, showing genuine commitment to the role. He soon starts (trying to) banter with some of the locals, even nutmegging a few of them.
One guy actually tries to tackle him, unaware he might as well be trying to knock out Floyd Mayweather.
Now we finally start building towards the climax, as our friendly neighborhood beggar (that’s Cristiano, in case you haven’t been paying attention) starts a kickabout with a kid.
Cristiano being Cristiano, he has a chat with the kid, and – satisfied he has found a suitably deserving nice lad – begins to peel off his disguise…
