Portuguese has more than 240 million followers on this network, where it is not the first time that people have started speaking in this language.
Cristiano Ronaldo surprised his Instagram followers on Friday when, in response to a request from some fans in the comments, he said a few words in Russian live.
“Hello, how are you, well, cheers,” were the phrases spoken in Russian by the Juventus player and captain of the Portugal team.
It is not the first time that Cristiano Ronaldo starts speaking in Russian during a live chat on Instagram, where he has more than 240 million followers.
The forward, holder of five Ballons d’Or and winner of five Champions League (one with Manchester United and four with Real Madrid), has never played in the Russian league and it is likely that some of those words were learned during his relationship with the Russian model and actress Irina Shayk.
