Son Asks Dad For Haircut Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gives Him 'R9' Ronaldo Instead
With no way to get to the barbers, a number of people in the UK have been getting trimmed up at home during self-isolation, with even David Beckham, the master of style, reverting back to his classic shaved head look from back on the day.
But one dad went for something a bit left-field when he gave his son the Ronaldo Nazario 2002 World Cup look, much to his surprise.
In a video which has gone viral, the lad, wearing a Chelsea shirt, explains to his old man that he wants to have the same haircut as 'Ronaldo' and shows him a picture of Cristiano in a Juventus shirt.
However, the dad had other ideas and decided to make his lad look like the Brazilian Ronaldo with his half a haircut.
The son, incensed by the trim he sees when he looks in the mirror, calls his dad a "dickhead" - while he just laughs hysterically and quips, "There's only Ronaldo!" - bringing up a picture of the 'O Fenomeno'.

But what was the reason why Ronaldo opted for such a mad style en route to scoring eight goals winning the World Cup? Well, he revealed that he donned that famous style to draw attention from a leg injury he was harbouring.
"I decided to cut my hair and leave the small thing there. I come to training and everybody saw me with bad hair," Ronaldo is quoted as saying on the matter.
"Everybody was talking about the hair and forgot about the injury. I could stay more calm and relaxed and focused on my training.
"I'm not proud about the hair itself because it was pretty strange. But it was a good way to change the subject."
