Melbourne, May 1 (ANI): Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe has admitted that he is a great fan of Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
The New Zealand-born actor had his picture taken with Ronaldo as well as with defenders Alvaro Arbeloa and Pepe, striker Raul Gonzalez and midfielder Guti.
“I was definitely looking forward to meeting Ronaldo because obviously he is one of the best players to have ever played the game,” Crowe said during his visit to the Spanish club, The Daily Telegraph reports.
The Oscar winning actor told the club’s television station: “I always check out La Liga table to see where Barcelona and Real Madrid stand, you have a great team.”
Crowe gave each player a baseball cap from his South Sydney Rabbitohs, a rugby team he owns in Australia. He received a Real shirt with his name emblazoned on the back.
“It was fun man. Obviously Real Madrid is a legendary club,” Crowe said.
Crowe was in the Spanish capital to promote his latest film Robin Hood which he produced and stars in. (ANI)
