NEVER judge a book by its cover, nor an international football star by his beard and beer belly. One of, if not the most recognisable man in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has posted videos of his undercover adventures in Madrid, surprising passers-by with keepie-uppie skills while wearing a beard, shades and bodysuit.
Filmed some time ago, but released this week to promote the star’s new line in headphones, Ronaldo’s busking performance sees him show some trademark impressive moves, but he fails to grab much attention from the passing crowd. Just a few stop to exchange a pass, or attempt to take the ball from the disguised maestro.
It’s not until a young boy stops to play for a while and Ronaldo asks him to show what he can do, that he unveils his true persona to a visibly awed child, and is instantly mobbed.
