The Portugal and Juventus football star’s decadent winter getaway to Dubai was as Insta-worthy as they come. But it wasn’t the seemingly endless yacht party pics or the live-streaming of his helicopter ride around the city that sent fans into a complete frenzy. It wasn’t even that quintessential Burj Al Arab shot or watching Dubai's blockbuster New Year's Eve fireworks. Nope, it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s picture with Dubai's crown prince Sheikh Hamdan that spun the Instagram stratosphere on its axis.
The formidable pair are seen smiling and enjoying each other’s company in the pictures posted on social media platform earlier today by both Rinaldo and the crown prince himself, who showed his enthusiasm for his friend with a caption readingt; “A great player and a greater friend @cristiano.” Ronaldo also shared his own sentiments with the photo by responding; "Great time with @Faz3," he wrote adding the famed #MyDubai hashtag. Could this be the bro-mance of the century we wonder?
Having set a new goal record in 2018 (just one of, if not, the best footballer of all time) the Portuguese forward has been spotted around Dubai with his family, partner Georgina Rodriguez and son Cristiano Junior.
Ronaldo is set to lead a star-studded line-up in Dubai tomorrow (Thursday 3 January 2019) for the 10th Globe Soccer Awards at Madinat Jumeirah. And, if that wasn’t enough for the football legend, it looks like he is also due to win his fifth Best Player Award this year. The red carpet will also see the likes of FIFA supremos such as FIFA President Gianni Infantino, FIFA Deputy Secretary General Zvonimir Boban (to name a few) who are also involved in the Dubai International Sports Conference.
