Neymar Cristiano Ronaldo La Liga 2016
Footballers have come out in force on social media to offer their well wishes to two of the world's biggest stars

For two of the biggest stars in the game, Sunday is a special day. Neymar celebrates his 25th birthday, while the cancelation of Real Madrid’s fixture against Celta Vigo has allowed Cristiano Ronaldo time off to celebrate his 32nd birthday.

Unsurprisingly, social media has been awash with well wishers for the pair, who are a couple of the game’s most recognisable faces.

While Neymar thanked his fans for their support, Ronaldo simply posted a picture of himself on a plane - so he's obviously having a tough day!

The pair are currently locked in a battle to win La Liga, with Ronaldo's Madrid side boast a one-point advantage with two matches in hand.
