If you’re mourning the fact that before long we’ll never see a player quite like Cristiano Ronaldo ever again, put the tissues away.
The man himself has spotted someone who he says has every one of his trademark features – and could go to the top of the game.
Well he would say that, it’s his son after all.
In a very rare interview about his private life, the legendary former Real Madrid and Manchester United star has opened up about the Ronaldo legacy – and keeping the famous name going in the game.

The Juventus man believes we will be seeing a lot more of seven-year-old Cristiano Jr in a decade’s time – and that he has even got his win-at-all-costs mentality.
“He’s very competitive,” Ronaldo said in an interview with DANZ after becoming their global ambassador.
“He’s like me as a child. He does not like to lose. He will become like me, I’m 100 per cent sure.
“I like to teach him some things, but in the end he will choose what to do and will always have my support.
“But of course, I would like him to become a footballer because I think he too has that passion.
“He’s powerful, fast, has good technique, a good shot. I will not put pressure on him, but of course it would be a dream for me to see him one day become a footballer.”
Cristiano Jr has already wowed social media after a clip of him firing in a free-kick in before the World Cup.
Predictably, he didn’t hold back in his celebrations either!
