However, despite being unaware they were in the company of one of the world's greatest players, most people in Spain's capital were pleased to engage with the mysterious vagabond before Ronaldo revealed his true identity to an unsuspecting youngster.

After almost embarrassing the young boy with his dribbling skills, the 30-year-old stopped to sign the ball he had been playing with before stripping off his disguise and gifting the ball to the awe struck child - while subsequently creating pandemonium in the streets.
