Cristiano Ronaldo captured the hearts of millions back in 2015 when he dressed as ‘a homeless person’ in Madrid to prank the general public in a hilarious viral video.
Ronaldo, complete with beard, padded suit and dog companion, performed freestyle moves in Madrid’sPlaza del Callao as people remained unaware that the man behind the suit was in fact the Ballon d’Or winner.
From trying to nutmeg pensioners to even asking a girl for her phone number, Ronaldo played the part perfectly and towards the end of the video, he reveals himself to the public and quickly gains a crowd of hundreds.
As he embarrasses a young child who challenged him to a freestyle face-off, the masked Cristiano signs the boy’s football to thenreveals himself as, well, himself – just look at the kid’s face, priceless.
Here is that incredible advert from 2015, which eventually picked up more than 30 million views on YouTube, Sit back, relax and enjoy:
Ronaldo was injured during the time of filming, so hats off to the Portuguese winger for making a lot of people’s day.
Love him or hate him, this video reignites your faith in professional footballers – a great gesture. I mean, just look at this kid’s face.

But despite often throwing tantrums on the pitch and giving team-mates abuse for not passing to him, Ferdinand insists that Ronaldo is actually a fun-loving character, and detailed one particularly funny prank on Sir Alex Ferguson as evidence:
He must have been taking his brave pills beforehand to even consider doing something like that to Sir Alex Ferguson.
