Nothing that you probably weren’t aware of already, but Cristiano Ronaldo has a pretty sweet first touch – as demonstrated here: Ron effortlessly plucks one out of the sky and manages to turn Gregory van der Wiel inside out on the touchline in one fluid motion…

Sadly the GIF doesn’t really do the whole thing justice, as Ronaldo was sprinting at a fair old rate of knots before dragging down a high ball that was falling over his shoulder, turning his man and tearing off down the wing.

Lovely stuff.
