Cristiano Ronaldo And Neymar Go Head To Head In The Boxing Ring

I didn't expect to see five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo dancing around a boxing ring with Neymar on this fine Sunday morning. But here we are.

Footage of both players going head to head has gone viral in recent hours, with many predicting how the fight would play out.

But to the disappointment of many, the pair were actually promoting Meo, a Portuguese mobile network.

Neymar and Ronaldo end up wearing Lucha Libre masks in the brilliant commercial, laughing at each other as they act out suggestions from the public.

Check out the brilliant clip below.

This isn't the only advert both Neymar and Ronaldo have appeared in for Portuguese mobile network, Meo.

In another version of the commercial, both players attempt to play table tennis with chopsticks after yet more suggestions from the general public.

The 34-year-old loves a good advert, and this parody of the 1990 classic Home Alone, created by Meo, is one of the best.

Ronaldo's mother Dona Dolores features in the spoof, with Ronaldo taking on Kevin McAllister's role.

The clip involves him doing the usual 'slap on aftershave on the face' scene as well as signing "I wish you a Merry Christmas" and frightening off a Pizza guy with the same technique Kevin famously used on the burglars.

But a couple of years ago, an inspirational advert ended up being a tad awkward.

Cristiano was taking a trip down memory lane when he posted this image of his younger self with the slogan 'Just Do It', the catchphrase of his sponsors Nike.

There was just one tiny problem - the young Ronaldo you see in the picture was apparently wearing an Adidas jumper at the time.

Who would win in a boxing fight between Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar?

Let us know in the comments.
