In the stunning new Nike commercial ahead of the 2016 European Championships in France starting on Friday, we go on a journey as Ronaldo and a young English player somehow switch bodies after their collision.

Other stars such as Anthony Martial and Harry Kane also feature in the commercial, which includes Ronaldo (the body he is trapped inside, at least) living in a northern English town and making a meteoric rise from playing for a local Sunday team to Preston North End to Manchester City and England.
