Cristiano Ronaldo performs new skill
The backpass gag is there for all to see
You can hate Cristiano Ronaldo. You can let his diving, his histrionics and his petulance annoy you. But then he does something that makes you realise why kids simply idolise him.
CR7 served up the latest addition to his showboat diary with a pass that is likely to become something of a viral sensation. Whilst the execution is not necessarily difficult, it is the sheer impudence and audacity of the man that sets him apart.
And all performed without using his new Nike Safari boots.
