The world’s most famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been welcomed by royalty on his latest trip to Dubai.

In a series of photos shared online on Thursday, the football star was seen meeting with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

The snaps were shared by Sheikh Hamdan – affectionately known as Fazza – himself via his Instagram story.
