IShowSpeed finally meets Cristiano Ronaldo after begging him to get out of car
| Last updated
A popular YouTuber with a fierce devotion to Cristiano Ronaldo has just managed to meet his idol in the flesh - and his response was about as joyous as you'd expect.
Millions of people tune in to watch YouTuber IShowSpeed and his live streams, and on his latest one, he met the man who is arguably the greatest and most famous person ever to kick a ball.
Obviously, such a huge fan would dearly love to meet the actual Ronaldo and he got his wish at Portugal's recent 3-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina.
While he didn't see his idol score, with Portugal's goals coming courtesy of Bernardo Silva in the first half and a brace from Bruno Fernandes in the second, he did at last get a chance to meet Ronaldo.
Waiting in the stadium as the players drove away, the YouTuber patiently bided his time until Ronaldo was heading out of the stadium, with IShowSpeed begging for a picture and remembering his 'por favor'.
Ronaldo's car stopped and the YouTuber could scarcely believe it when Cristiano Ronaldo himself stepped out for a hug and a quick chat.
He fell to his knees with his arms outstretched in worship and kept telling the football legend 'I love you', he even got Ronaldo to do the 'siu' celebration with him before the footballer got back into his car and headed off.
It's safe to say that IShowSpeed was reasonably happy with his encounter, collapsing against a wall and repeating the phrases 'I finally did it bro' and 'I love you so much god'.
Appearing to hyperventilate and saying he was 'about to pass out', the YouTuber still had enough left in him to do another 'siu' celebration to the camera and commemorate the chance to meet Ronaldo.
Ronaldo himself is doing pretty well considering these are supposed to be the twilight years of his career on the pitch.
He's 2023's highest paid athlete in the world as he's set to rake in an estimated $136 million (£106) thanks to his pay packets on and off the pitch.
In fact, the vast majority of his earnings will come from what he does off the football pitch thanks to his merchandise, marketing and sponsorship deals.
While he might be raking it in hand over fist in earnings, it does look like Ronaldo is nearing the end of his time as a top footballer.
Ever since a rather acrimonious exit from Manchester United, the 38-year-old has been playing for Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr, a far cry from those heady days of Champions League dominance he enjoyed with Real Madrid.
