Cristiano Ronaldo has been praised by millions around the world.
Commentators, fans, and pundits alike have all reveled in the glory of the man widely expected to win the Ballon D'Or award in January.
The latest person to sing the Portuguese forward's praises is none other than Gareth Bale's mum, who has described Ronaldo as "brilliant" in helping the Welshman take to life in Madrid.
50-year old Debbie said: "Ronaldo has been absolutely brilliant - he's helped him settle in. When you feel good you start to play well - he's living the dream."
Bale has recovered from an injury-hit start to his career in Madrid and has since been in blistering form, scoring nine goals in his last 11 appearances, including a hat-trick in his last outing against Real Valladolid.
Speaking at the BBC Welsh Sports Personality of the year - for which Bale was nominated although the award went to rugby star Leigh Halfpenny - Debbie spoke of her pride and joy at seeing her son unveiled as a Real Madrid player.
She added: "'It was fabulous, all the family was there - it was like a dream."
It is not known whether Bale and Ronaldo will feature against Copenhagen in the Champions League tonight, but it seems unlikely that they will play much part as Real have already qualified for the next phase of the competition as group winners.
The other match in the group is a mouth-watering one though as Juventus travel to Turkey to face Galatasaray needing a point to ensure their own qualification.
