He’s got the propensity to be a petulant, pouting little madame on the pitch, but as we’ve seen numerous times by now, Cristiano Ronaldo is a thoroughly decent chap away from the intense heat of sporting battle.
Here we see the Real Madrid superstar being interviewed by a young Japanese fan at the launch on his bizarre “facial fitness” widget, with the kid making the bold decision to attempt to grill Ronaldo in his native Portuguese tongue.
Facing a bit of ridicule from the crowd for his broken Portuguese, the young lad begins to look a little nervous – right up until the point that Ronaldo wades in and sticks up for the boy…
Yeah, good on the little guy for trying in the first place – and shame on a room full of adults for giggling at him.
Unless he accidentally said a Portuguese swear word of course, then all bets are off.
