Cristiano Ronaldo Dresses Up as Homeless Man & Pranks Madrid
As well as being an expert in the football arts, Cristiano Ronaldo is also a master of disguise.

The striker took to the streets of Madrid dressed as a puffy, bearded, homeless man with incredible footwork.

His performance was so convincing that when he asked a woman for her number, she turned down one of the world's best players.

After nearly an hour in the disguise, Ronaldo eventually revealed his identity to a young boy, who at first was shocked and then delighted. He then signed a ball for the boy before a crowd at people rushed to gather around him.

It's been seven months in the making but the Real Madrid forward finally released the full version of his time in disguise this week. The Portuguese captain uploaded the video to his Facebook page and it has already been viewed more than 20 million times.

In the video, he shows off his trademark skills from nutmegging members of the unsuspecting public to performing countless stepovers and juggling.

It all gets a bit too much for the three-time Ballon d'Or winner who then spends time chilling out with his dog and even takes an impromptu nap on the street.

The video was shot in collaboration with ROC Live Life Loud to promote a new range of headphones.

On Monday, Ronaldo found himself in the news for storming out of an interview, saying he did not give a f*** about FIFA or Qatar's hosting of the 2022 World Cup Finals, reports The Independent.
