He’s known for taking care of his looks - which might be why crowds failed to recognise Cristiano Ronaldo in a busy Madrid street when he disguised himself.
The Real Madrid star underwent a makeover, complete with long hair, greying bristly beard and a padded suit, leaving him barely unrecognisable.
Then, complete with a canine companion, Ronaldo took to the street of the Spanish capital’s Plaza del Callao, where he showed off his football skills.
