Luka Modric leaves Cristiano Ronaldo hanging in Real Madrid training

Following Cristiano Ronaldo's heated exchange with the press last week, it seemed as though the Portuguese star was in serious need of a chill pill.

The Real Madrid stalwart was so upset with a journalist disputing his goal-scoring record, he picked up his jacket and left early, leaving Zinedine Zidane to face the rest of the questions on his own.

He only appeared more cold and distant after later admitting that he did not have to be friends with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to have a good relationship on the pitch. His evidence for such a claim was that he never had any friends at Manchester United and won loads of things with them.

But while the 31-year-old may appear like a lone wolf at times, it seems the fiercely competitive forward is more than capable of seeing the funny side of a basic prank. Luka Modric proved as much in a recent Real Madrid training session.

The Croatian playmaker, who himself has been something of a star for Los Blancos this season, was busy giving all his team-mates high fives and Ronaldo clearly wanted some of the action.

However, Modric ignored Ronaldo, leaving the three-time Ballon d'Or winner hanging for an excruciating number of seconds. Everyone saw the funny side, including Ronaldo and now we are all enjoying the video.

Getting serious

Today, the two will be getting serious as they take on Malaga in a crucial La Liga clash. Having seen Barcelona go ten points clear of them at the top, only a win will keep them within touching distance. If Ronaldo delivers the goods, he can expect countless high fives from all his team-mates.
