For his outstanding services to the ‘melting defenders into pools of goo’ and ‘making goalkeepers question their choice of profession’ industries, Nike invited Ronaldo along to their HQ in Oregon to formally present him with a solid gold pair of the signature ‘R9’ Mercurial boots that he sported throughout his heyday (from 1998 onwards).
A rather swish, fitting trinket if we do say so ourselves…
Give us a smile Ronny!
Sod you then.
