Ronaldo fan crowdsurfs on to Ballon d'Or red carpet

A security guard was quick to remove the spectator, who clumsily caught the eye of the Real Madrid star at the awards ceremony in Zurich on Monday night


He may have finished runner-up in the voting for the 2015 Ballon d'Or to Lionel Messi, but Cristiano Ronaldo remains as popular as ever.

One Ronaldo fan was so eager to catch the Real Madrid star's attention that he crowdsurfed his way onto the red carpet at the awards ceremony in Zurich on Monday night.

The fan enjoyed a brief exchange with Ronaldo as he arrived at the venue, before being promptly removed by security after an awkward landing on the red carpet.

Scant consolation for the Portugal star, perhaps, and he certainly found it an enjoyable moment.
