The Real Madrid star posted a video on social media of his son emulating his father by scoring from a dead ball

Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have competition for free-kick supremacy... from his own family!

The Real Madrid star posted a video on Instagram of his seven-year-old son Cristiano Jr. scoring a free-kick stunner, much like his father has done so many times in the past. 

The younger Ronaldo emulates his father's trademark backwards walk and free-kick stance, before placing the dead ball beyond the goalkeeper and into the back of the net. 

Ronaldo posted the footage of his son's latest exploits with the caption: "Nothing is coincidence."

Though the onlooking crowd erupts, the seven-year-old calmly turns around and walks back to the centre circle as if he's done it many times before. 

Ronaldo recently welcomed his fourth child and first with girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.
