Cristiano Ronaldo takes on Rafa Nadal in quality new Nike advert

Kudos to sportswear giant Nike for producing an excellent new advert involving Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and tennis superstar Rafa Nadal.

Ronaldo takes on Nadal in his pink Mercurial Vapor VIII’s and does an impressive job of returning a tennis ball from some of the Spaniard’s shots.

Nadal, who is often seen at the Bernabeu and following the Spanish national team, also chips in with some nifty football skills towards the end of the video.

Ronaldo said afterwards: “Filming with Rafa is something different — me with football, him with tennis. It was a pleasure. I really enjoyed it.”
