Disguised with a wig, fake beard, sunglasses and a fat suit under scruffy clothes, footballer Cristiano Ronaldo takes to the streets of Madrid as a tramp armed with a football, a chair, a dog and a donation box.

In a video posted on YouTube, he is seen showing off his impressive footwork and attempts to interact with the public as very few people oblige him.

A boy, however, bats the ball back and forth and tries to keep up with the famous Portuguese footballer.

After some time, Ronaldo asks the boy, Nicolás, his name, signs the ball, pulls off his wig and beard, and hands the ball to the boy.

The previously oblivious crowd suddenly realises there is a famous footballer in their midst and become excited.

But it was too late. Ronaldo had packed up and was on his way off.
