When one thinks of Cristiano Ronaldo, the first thing that springs to mind - aside from his formidable potency in front of goal - is his quite breathtaking array of fancy tricks and flicks.

The Real Madrid star, who of course established his first-class reputation in the Premier League with Manchester United, is arguably the best player in the world with only Barcelona's Lionel Messi standing between him and total domination of the footballing landscape.

In Real training this week Ronaldo - along with former Tottenham star Gareth Bale who completed a world-record £85 million switch to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer - fully showcased his incredible range of skills and embarrassed several teammates in the process.

Among the best moves performed was Bale's breathtaking pirouette pass which left Luka Modric in disbelief.

Watch footage of the sumptuous skills above.
