Russell Crowe mingles with Cristiano Ronaldo

Friday April 30, 2010

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of his Real Madrid team have plenty of fans around the world, including Russell Crowe it seems.

While the New Zealand-born actor was in Madrid for the premiere of his latest film, Robin Hood, he was sure to stop by a training session to catch some of his favourite footballers in action.

Russell chatted with the stars of Real Madrid, including the team's injured captain, Raul Gonzalez, whom he wished a speedy recovery.

There was also an exchange of gifts as Cristiano presented a jersey to the actor, who in turn gave each player words of good luck and a cap from the rugby team that he co-owns, the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
