Cristiano Ronaldo is one of, if not the most, famous footballer in the world and whatever the Portuguese does will always receive plenty of attention; but 42,000 re-tweets!
What on earth did he do to create such a massive storm online? To give you a little taster of just how many people that is it is roughly the same as the population of Liechtenstein!
So what did he do?
Post a naked picture of himself? Ball-room dance with Lionel Messi? Punch a baby?
No, he simply wished Justin Bieber well on his upcoming tour date in Madrid.
The other week Bieber received a less than welcome show of disdain from another footballer as Joey Barton referred to him as a, and I quote; ‘a little shaved bird with earrings’ and a ‘smack addiction waiting to happen’.
Barton better watch out as David Haye was quite impressed with the 19-year-olds ability with the gloves when the two sparred for a Sky television show last year and after the Canadian’s recent run-in with a moronic paparazzo he seems pretty up for a fight at the moment.
But after seeing Bieber struggling with plenty of negative press after his London dates earlier in the month Ronaldo took it upon himself to wish him a better time in the Spanish capital:
@justinbieber I've heard that you rocked in Lisbon. Now welcome to Madrid. I'm sure you will have also huge success and positivity.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) March 13, 2013
So while Joey Barton may not be a ‘Belieber’ it appears Cristiano Ronaldo is.
At least Joey has better music taste then the Portuguese master hey?!?
