Cristiano Ronaldo entered an Instagram Live topless and failed to get his light on for more than a minute before making his excuses and leaving.
The Portuguese superstar was speaking to fellow countryman and comedian Bruno Nogueira, 38, on the social media site.
Using his stunning partner Georgina Rodriguez’s account, Ronaldo surprised the comic but appeared in the dark as he appeared to have some lighting issues.
It took the global superstar an age to switch his light on during the duo’s conversation leaving over 150,000 fans struggling to make him out.
Ronaldo is not the first football star to appear with Nogueira as Manchester City ace Bernardo Silva has also featured.
Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio is another Portuguese icon to have sat down with the famous comic on his Instagram page.
Ronaldo was dialling in from Turin after returning to Italy ahead of the resumption of Serie A.
He said: “I was told you were live. I wanted to give you a hug, we are an hour ahead here and there’s training tomorrow.”
Nogueira could not believe it when he received a call from Spanish beauty Rodriguez and when he heard Ronaldo’s voice he was even more puzzled.
The Portuguese celebrity – whose Instagram chats have proved a big hit in the country during lockdown – said: “It can’t be Ronaldo! It can’t be him!”
Ronaldo eventually revealed himself to be half-naked in bed once he switched the light on and Nogueira told him to rest up and eat healthy as football in Italy prepares to return.
