A super cute video has been released showing the live reactions of a group of Sporting Lisbon kids at the moment Cristiano Ronaldo won the 2013 Ballon d’Or.
Ronaldo, who started his career at Sporting before moving to Manchester United in 2003, clearly remains an idol back at his original stomping ground, and on Monday afternoon a group of kids were crowded around a TV at the academy to watch announcement for the winner of 2013 Ballon d’Or.
After getting themselves excited during a montage of Ronaldo goals, the young boys exploded with excitement after watching Pele announce that Cristiano Ronaldo had scooped this year’s award.
Watch the lovely video of kids from one of Sporting Lisbon’s youth academies reacting to Cristiano Ronaldo winning the Ballon d’Or below.
