Cristiano Ronaldo uploads Instagram photo of overhead kick in Al Nassr debut but fans point out ex-Manchester United star’s post not all it seems


We’ve all heard about Instagram vs reality, well it’s safe to say that Cristiano Ronaldo knows exactly what we’re talking about. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is the most followed person on the social media platform with 540million followers to his name, largely due to his iconic global standing. Ronaldo is a key man for Al-Nassr and has an Instagram following of 540millionGetty IG: CristianoHowever his social media posts have been a bit cheeky after posting an image of him pulling off a stunning bicycle kick[/caption] But even the most famous people in the world sometimes get a little bit creative with their social media posts. Ronaldo is attracting headlines all over the world after signing for Al-Nassr earlier this month. The Portuguese star is earning £173million a year and made his debut for the Saudi Arabian side in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Ettifaq. While Ronaldo didn’t manage to get on the scoresheet himself, he still managed to find some eye-catching images from the match to share to his millions of followers. However, all was not as it seems. One of Ronaldo’s shared images was of the star shaping up to pull off the most spectacular of bicycle kicks, leading to adoration from his followers with the skill demonstrating just how good a player he still is.

Ronaldo can do more with a football than any of us mere mortals can even dream of, but it’s pleasing to see that even one of the world’s greatest footballers falls flat sometimes.
