Cristiano Ronaldo attends Chinese Super League clash

23 Jul 2017

There was a surprise special guest at the recent Chinese Super League clash between Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande, when Cristiano Ronaldo attended the fixture.

Fifteen minutes before kick-off, Ronaldo appeared on the field of play alongside his compatriot Ricardo Carvalho to take in the applause of the supporters.

The city of Shanghai is currently going through its hottest summer in 145 years, something the Real Madrid ace joked about while on the field.

“Today is the hottest day because I’m here,” he laughed. “It is a pleasure to be in Shanghai and meet people who love football and Cristiano.”

After spending five minutes on the field taking a photo with Carvalho and Zhang Wenzhao, he retired to an executive box to take in the decisive fixture.
