Cristiano Ronaldo has made a career of embarrassing his rivals on the pitch - and now he's doing it on the training ground as well.

The Portuguese superstar, fresh off the back of scoring no less five against Granada over the weekend, was seemingly in a good mood during the session, and during a game of keep-ball left his would-be rival completely bamboozled with the impressive trick.


Full-back Marcelo seemed to be particularly enamoured with the fine piece of skill, running around open-mouthed afterwards.

It was a good week all round for Ronaldo, who picked up a booking for diving in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday, with the referee deeming that he tried to trick his way to a penalty.


That would have ruled him out for one game, but now the Spanish Football federation have overruled the decision and he is free to play.

A statement said: "The RFEF Competition Committee has upheld the appeal submitted by Real Madrid against the yellow card shown to Cristiano Ronaldo in the match against Rayo Vallecano."

Real Madrid are one point behind Barcelona at the top of the table with 30 games gone. They take on 14th place Eibar this weekend, while their Catalan rivals face a tough task against Sevilla.
