It lasted barely a minute but the staunch Real Madrid fan was left on cloud nine after meeting Cristiano Ronaldo.
There’s certainly a huge amount of pleasure when Ronaldo fans meet their idol. Pictures, autographs and maybe a hug are top bucket list items that thousands of supporters who flock to stadiums and training ground venues hope to experience.
Many fanatics attempt to do so but only a few lucky ones succeed. For Maglie native Arianna Turi, 5 September 2017 is a date she will never forget. The self-proclaimed die-hard Madridista was at Valdebebas on Tuesday morning as Cristiano Ronaldo drove his expensive car following his return from international duty with Portugal.
As accessible as he is, he paused for a moment with privileged ones and did not turn down Arianna’s request for a selfie with her pink phone.
The gorgeous lady expressed ecstasy on Facebook. She followed up with a lovely caption saying:
“The best day of my life! After many years being by your side, today you made my dream of a lifetime.
“I have a picture with you and the t-shirt with your signature. Thank you, Cristiano.”
Tears went running down her cheeks as she struggled to contain her explosion of joy. Spanish media AS TV was there to capture the scenes.
Cristiano paró, se hizo fotos, firmó y la afición… ¡lloró!
