Watch an awestruck Cristiano Ronaldo Junior meet Lionel Messi


When your dad is one of the world’s best footballers, it seems surprising that you’d ever be starstruck when meeting on of his rivals.

But that’s clearly not the case for Cristiano Ronaldo Junior in this footage from the new Ronaldo documentary.

Cristiano Jr is remarkably shy when meeting Lionel Messi, a player who his old man has admitted is one of the five-year-old’s favourites. Messi, to his credit, acts very sweetly.

This should draw a line under any suggestions that the game’s best players hate each other.
