Christmas crackers: Ronaldo v Messi part 2

Ronnie wins.

Heeerrreee’s Ronnie!

Cristiano wins this round but Leo Messi has memories of 91 goals in 2012 to keep him warm.

Ronaldo fact:

When the Real Madrid star was just 15 he was diagnosed with Tachycardia or ‘racing heart’. It means his resting heartbeat is often over 100bpm [beats per minute].

Ronaldo joke:

Cristiano Ronaldo:”God sent me to this earth to show people how to play football.”

Leo Messi:”I never sent anyone.”
