Cristiano Ronaldo Shares Special Moment With Young Juventus Supporter On The Bench

Cristiano Ronaldo spent time interacting with a fan who somehow ended up being on the Juventus bench in the second half of the International Champions Cup game with Spurs in Singapore.

Ronaldo was subbed off on the hour mark and in the 80th minute, the Premier Sports TV cameras captured Ronaldo sharing a special moment with the youngster, engaging in conversation with him and giving him a high-five while the game was going on.

The kid had a beaming smile on his face, with Ronaldo, along with Blaise Matuidi and Leonardo Bonucci, having loads of time for him.

Maurizio Sarri saw the little lad heading over to the Juventus bench but made sure stewards didn't intervene, allowing him to have memories that will last a lifetime.

"I thought security was going to come for him," Sarri said, as per the Daily Mail.

"When it is a kid it is not a pitch invasion, it is a moment of joy."

Juventus lost the first game of pre-season 3-2 to Spurs as despite Gonzalo Higuain and Ronaldo both getting on the scoresheet, Harry Kane scored a stunning 60-yard winner in the 93rd minute.

After fellow goalscorer Lucas Moura regained possession just inside the Juventus half, Kane spotted Wojciech Szczęsny off his line and promptly produced a phenomenal first-time effort that flew into the top bins.

Both David Beckham and Wayne Rooney conjure up incredible long-range strikes in their career and now Kane has repeated the heroics with one of the best goals he will ever score.
