Cristiano Ronaldo is a man of many talents. Singing, it appears, isn’t one of them. Or perhaps it is, depending on how well your ears work and whether or not you’re one of the more blinkered members of the Portuguese sensation’s following.
Footage of the Real Madrid superstar belting out a rendition of Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ whilst travelling on a plane with his international teammates has been released ahead of the unveiling of his new film ‘Ronaldo’.
Whilst it confirms that the former Manchester United forward wasn’t ever destined to let his voice bring home the money, it’s good to see a side to him that isn’t centered around putting opponents to the sword on a football pitch.
Ronaldo might well lead his own round of applause after his offering - the modest side to him never goes away - but it’s more how excited he gets when singing that provides genuine entertainment for fans hoping to gain a glimpse of arguably the world’s best player during his downtime.
‘Ronaldo’ the film will be released in two days time - November 9, 2015 - documenting the 30-year-old’s rise from the young child of Madeira with lofty ambitions to the global phenomenon he has become via Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Annnnd, here's him singing along to Rihanna:
The only shame is that sooner or later the Ronaldo wagon will reach the end of its journey - when it does there’s sure to be plenty of fans out there who shed a tear or two at the climax of a truly astounding football career.
