Football News

Cristiano Ronaldo picks the ball up half-way on the pitch, travels with it before hitting the net.

No, we’re not commentating on one of Ronaldo’s goals for Real Madrid but one of his slam-dunks during a game of basketball in training.

Zinedine Zidane gave his players permission to relax from football for a couple of minutes during training and ordered them to take up a completely different sport in the meantime.

Despite it being a different sport, similar traits occurred. Ronaldo not passing the ball, scoring in style before going off to celebrate by himself.

Pepe may be a commanding defender on the football pitch but he could do nothing about Ronaldo’s impressive attacking move as he powered his way towards the hoop before a two-handed slam.

The club posted the video on their YouTube channel with the caption “Don’t miss the players trying their hand at basketball in today’s training session!”

Watch the Madrid players swap a football for a basketball in the video below:

The standard looks very good with the players’ competitive edge no doubt shining through as they look to get one over their teammates in a different sport.

Zidane’s men currently sit in third position, one point behind their Madrid rivals Atletico but four points behind Barcelona having played one match more.
