We look at the different avatars of the Portuguese captain.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a very-very expressive person, much more expressive than you would expect a player so used winning trophies, individual or as a team. It just says how much it means to him, every single time. So, as we saw him pocket his fourth Ballon d'Or (I was tempted to use the word potentially, but not tempted enough) screaming and doing everything he can on the touchline during the Euro finals, urging him team forward till they went the last metre.

He is the perfectionist at dividing opinion, you love him or hate him, you can't ignore he just wrote his name beside the likes of Zidane, Platini, Cruyff in the European folklore. To be honest, fifteen years on, we won't probably remember any other player from the team, and this will be his legacy.

It is difficult to point a finger at what makes him so entertaining, whether it's his personality, his ego, his weird celebration or his affinity for taking off his shirt. We look at a few instances when he defined the kind of person he is, and what makes him CR7.

Cristiano Ronaldo stops the officials from taking away the pitch invader

To be honest, I love Cristiano Ronaldo wound up, he seems like he his going to cry every time he misses a chance. So what do you think he will be like after a game where he missed a potentially match-winning penalty? 

Apparently, all smiles and patiently waiting for a fan to reboot his phone so that his camera starts working. It was so heartwarming to see him stop the officials from taking the young fan away, much more so when you see the expression on the young kid's face when he walks away with the selfie of his life. It was exactly how Ronaldo looked when he raised the trophy for Portugal.

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong” Joseph Chilton Pearce.

Before the Portugal Wales game, a mascot decided to be creative and brave, he walked into the pitch beside the biggest stars in football, but he had his eye on Mr Cristiano, and after photo bombing the Portugal team picture, he was rewarded with a hug and a pose for a selfie. To be honest I envy that kid a little bit. (Okay, a lot).
