Al-Nassr and Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo shared a training video of himself on his Instagram account where he can be seen shaking his body to a South African music and fans are in awe of his dancing skills.

This is during the current off-season when the biggest names in football are currently spending time with their families and loved ones at different locations for vacation.

The five-time Ballon D'or winner while going about his off-season workout routine can be seen listening to a South African jam titled “Amapiano” by Costa Stitch of blessed memory.

In the 30 seconds training video captioned “Feeling good 💪🏽,” Ronaldo tagged his own mineral water brand called Ursu9. And drinking from it, he commenced some series of Dumbbell lifting of varying weights, before dancing to the South African jam.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently became the most capped player in international football, is regarded as one of the best players the world has ever seen.

He has a training addiction that has seen him rise to the level he is today, and with motivation to create records in the Saudi league, he will continue working on himself to achieve his dreams there.

How fans reacted to Ronaldo's workout video

On seeing the video by the Real Madrid legend, fans rushed to the comment section to pour their feelings, notably his South Africa fans who were filled with awe on seeing him play a song from their territory.

One fan with the name Swergkidthod said “My goat can dance.”

Another fan who goes by Awande546 said “You know the song is from South Africa.”

Having joined the Saudi Arabian club in January, 2023 from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo ended the 2022/23 season fifth on the goal-scorers ranking in the Saudi Pro League despite joining the league mid-season.

Although Al-Nassr failed to win the league title as Al-Ittihad won their ninth league championship last season, Ronaldo will be eager to fight and win the league title this coming season, and will also be going for the top scorer award like he usually does in every league he has played in.

The Saudi Pro League will commence its 2023-24 season in August and has already seen a flurry of stars sign for various clubs in the league, who've followed Ronaldo's steps.

Players like Karim Benzema (Al-Ittihad), N'Golo Kante (Al-Ittihad), Roberto Firmino (Al Ahli), Hakim Ziyech (Al-Nassr), and Ruben Neves (Al Hilal) amongst others, have all joined.

The 2023/24 Saudi Pro League campaign promises to be a top season with all these players opting to play there.
