Cristiano Ronaldo Shows Off His Ball-Handling Skills

Cristiano Ronaldo Pokerstars Advert

Last week, Cristiano Ronaldo made headlines after an altercation on the field went viral. During last Sunday’s Real Madrid game, Jorge Resurrección Merodio (aka Koke) called him a “faggot”, and Ronaldo’s response was amazing.

Today, PokerStars launched a new #RaiseIt campaign featuring Ronaldo and basketball superstar Dwayne Wade. The 31-year-old footballer showcased his impressive ball skills in an effort to out-do Wade and encourage PokerStars players to outbid their opponents.

In response to the campaign, Ronaldo said, “Challenges often bring out the best in people and #raiseit is all about that so I’m really happy to be part of it. Creating these videos allowed Dwyane and I to showcase some crazy tricks, and take each other on outside of the pitch and court. I think I have set the bar high for Dwyane, so we’ll see what kind of skills he brings to the table in the next few months.”

Although Ronaldo has excellent ball-handling skills, we can’t stop thinking about handling his actual balls. C’mon, just look at that package bounce!

Open your eyes @dwyanewade this is how I wake up ? #raiseit
