Madrid: While Cristiano Ronaldo has won his third Ballon d’Or award trumping Lionel Messi with more than double the votes, it seems a family member of his, is a fan of the Argentine and Barcelona forward.
The Messi admirer is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo’s son, Cristiano Ronaldo Junior. In fact, the kid was the reason behind a heartwarming moment between the two superstar footballers.
Watching Messi nearby, Ronaldo asked his son to go and say hello to the Barcelona forward. Messi, to his credit, interacted with the kid asking him, how is he doing.
Ronaldo then shouted from behind saying, “He (the kid) watched a video on the Internet about us and he talks about you." Seeing his son was getting shy, the Real Madrid superstar implored his son, "Don't be embarrassed now!"
