THIS is Cristiano Ronaldo like you’ve never seen before.
The Real Madrid star wears a wig and plays an 18-year-old version of himself in a brand new ad for Portuguese company Meo.
The emotional ad shows what it would have been like if Ronaldo had grown up with today’s social media.
It traces the handsome player’s rise from youth player in a small Portuguese neighbourhood to global star.
It begins with Ronaldo talking to his mum as a youngster on the phone while he was having trials at Sporting CP.
After destroying Manchester United in a friendly which urged Sir Alex Ferguson to sign him, Ronaldo became the most expensive teenager in football history when he penned a deal at Old Trafford.
And the advert shows how he steps out of his car in Manchester before talking to his parents at the Theatre of Dreams.
In the video he paid tribute to Ferguson by saying: “I wanted the number 28, but the Mister game me the 7. He says that is the jersey of kings.”
His father then responds: “There’s only one king and it’s you.”
The advert then continues to show how Ronaldo later joined Real Madrid before lifting the European Cup with Portugal.
