WATCH: At Ballon d’Or ceremony, Ronaldo’s son meets Messi, his footballing idol


Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi may compete against each other for the title of the world’s best footabller, but they certainly have something in common when it comes to fan of theirs.

Ronaldo’s son apparently is a big fan of Messi, and the youngster had a shy interaction with the Barcelona standout at the recent Ballon d’Or ceremony.

“How are you doing? How’s it all going, good?” Messi said to Ronaldo Jr.

“He always watches videos of us and he speaks about you,” the Real Madrid star responded to his rival at Barca, making up for the bashful silence of his son.

The two players will next face each other in league play on Mar. 22.
