The Real Madrid star posed for a selfie and was amused by one fan's attempt to invade his team's pre-match photo ahead of the clash with Wales


The pressure is on Cristiano Ronaldo as Portugal look to seal their place in the Euro 2016 final at the expense of Wales, but the Real Madrid star was gracious enough to make time for a couple of star-struck ball boys ahead of kick-off in Lyon.

One particularly confident young fan snuck into the frame to Ronaldo's left to pose for Portugal's team photo, much to the amusement of the national team's captain.

Another then asked the 31-year-old to pose for a pre-match selfie.

It is not the first time Ronaldo has been greeted by fans on the pitch at Euro 2016 - after Portugal's 0-0 draw with Austria, in which he missed a penalty, Ronaldo waved away stewards to take a photo with a pitch invader.
