Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar have everything they could ask for in life.
Adored my millions. Weekly wages reaching hundreds of thousands of pounds. An abundance of winners medals.
What they didn’t have, however, was a Ronaldinho scooter. Until now.

The pair share the same birthday - February 5 - and to celebrate, Brazil hero Ronaldinho bought them both a hoverboard covered in his signature.
Called a Ronaldinho Scooter, only 5,000 units of the gold-painted machine were made and they cost £480 each.
Luckily for Ronaldo and Neymar, the two superstars didn’t have to pay a penny thanks to Ronaldinho’s generosity.
The former Barcelona trickster tweeted both players with congratulatory messages, adding to Neymar: “Keep playing with such joy!!”
He wished Ronaldo “health and success!”
La Liga title race
Neymar turned 24 while Ronaldo celebrated his 31st birthday. The La Liga stars are currently embroiled in a fierce battle for the Spanish title, the Brazilian’s Barcelona side currently in first place on 54 points, four points ahead of Ronaldo’s Real Madrid team with Atletico Madrid sandwiched in-between.
The two players have been integral for their respective clubs this season. Neymar has scored 21 goals and was exceptional in Barcelona’s 4-0 win at the Bernabeu earlier in the season, scoring a goal and assisting Andrea Iniesta’s strike.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, has scored 30 goals in 30 appearances for Los Blancos.
The pair will face off at the Camp Nou on April 3 in an El Clasico encounter that promises to excite.
Carlos Tevez was also born on February 5. His Ronaldinho Scooter must have got lost in the post.
