AS Roma captain and Italian football legend Francesco Totti has posted a video that appears to poke fun at Cristiano Ronaldo after mimicking the Real Madrid superstar's strange scream in the middle of his acceptance speech at this month's FIFA Ballon d'Or awards for 2014.

The Portugal international shocked the gathered audience and media in Zurich after letting out a high-pitched yelp whilst on centre stage at the prestigious annual ceremony in Switzerland.

Ronaldo later explained that the bizarre sound was the replication of a celebration he often performs with his club teammates at the Santiago Bernabeu, but that didn't stop the clip from going viral across social media, with a number of different parody videos and other memes later emerging to take the mickey out of the 29-year-old.

And, not one to miss an opportunity, Totti has decided to join the party of people to have a laugh at the expense of the former Manchester United man, uploading this effort with the help of dubsmash.com earlier today.

The 38-year-old forward is revered back in his homeland for his contribution to Serie 'A' over the past 20 years, spending the entirety of his illustrious career at Stadio Olimpico.

This latest piece of footage provides another reason to love Totti, who only last week took a selfie with Roma supporters straight after scoring the equalising goal in a 2-2 draw with local rivals Lazio.

With Rudi Garcia's side trailing 2-0 at half-time, the veteran cut the arrears with a fine curling effort shortly after the interval and then converted a Jose Holebas cross to bring the game level.

After grabbing a mobile phone from one of the Roma coaches Totti proceeded to celebrate his brace by taking a selfie with his own fans to strengthen his case as football's ultimate social media king.

You can re-watch Ronaldo's peculiar shriek at the FIFA Ballon d'Or awards, after he picked up the individual accolade for the third time of his career and the second consecutive year.

He secured the award with 37.66 per cent of the votes cast, ahead of Barcelona maestro Lionel Messi (15.76%) and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (15.72%).
