Ronaldo displays amazing acting skills in new movie

Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, proves he could successfully take up a career in acting after football by starring in a new movie titled The Switch.

Launched by American kit giants, Nike, the six-minute movie was released in anticipation of the 2016 European Championship, which starts Friday in France.

Ronaldo, 31, who will lead the Portuguese contingents, comes into the competition off the back of a third UEFA Champions League success with Real.

He could add to his long list of records if he finds the back of the net in France – becoming only the first player to score in four consecutive Euro tourneys.

The film which is created by Wieden Kennedy and directed by Rattling Stick’s Ringan Ledwidge, is the longest brand Nike Football has ever produced.

It tells the story of a nasty collision between Portuguese Ronaldo and a young English ball-boy during a match between the two nations. The bash of heads leaves the pair with switched personalities and abilities, thus rendering Ronaldo a shade of his former self and giving the young boy almost otherworldly skills.

Nike confirmed on their official website that it required five days of filming to produce the film – Ronaldo’s most extensive ever – with all of it taking place in Spain.

The movie features 16 other football superstars including Raheem Sterling, Joe Hart, Harry Kane, Chris Smalling, John Stones, Ross Barkley, Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial.
