Cristiano Ronaldo knows how to show off. But he also knows how to stay humble.
And his first motivational Instagram post of 2018 displays both qualities.
Posing in his home town of Madeira on a balcony with his impressive collection of individual awards, including his five Ballon d’Ors.
However in the caption, where he of course discusses his rise from the streets of the Madeira, he ends it by thanking his fans for their support, and saying the trophies are theirs as well as his.
“When I played on the streets of Madeira and dreamed of getting to the top of football I could not imagine that one day I would be taking a photo like this.
“I dedicate this moment above all to my family, my friends, my teammates, the coaches who learned and many others who work in clubs and selection structures.
Finally, a very special thank you to my fans. These trophies are also yours!
Except they aren’t Cristiano are they? They belong only to you.
