Cristiano Ronaldo laughs hysterically at his own attempt to draw Portugal teammate Pepe as Manchester United star appears in good spirits at World Cup

    Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be in good spirits ahead of the World Cup in a recent video with the Portugal national team.

    The 37-year-old currently faces an uncertain future at Manchester United following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan, but a fresh clip suggests he has put his club woes aside for the time being whilst on international duty.

    As Fernando Santos’ side prepare for their tournament opener against Ghana, some of the squad took part in some team bonding.

    In a video posted on their official Twitter account, players showed their artistic sides as they were tasked with drawing their teammates.

    One pairing in particular saw Ronaldo attempt to draw football veteran Pepe, with the former’s attempt producing a hilarious outcome.

    Ronaldo’s efforts prove he should probably stick to football as he gave Pepe a massive nose and mouth in what was a comical drawing.

    The United forward burst into laughter at his attempt, with his teammate doing no better with his impression of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

    Ronaldo and the rest of the Portugal squad will be looking to go all the way at this year’s World Cup, with A Seleção searching for their first ever title in the competition.

    Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva were just some of the other stars who also gave the challenge a go, and they too proved that a career change to artist is certainly not on the horizon.

    Portugal are considered to be one of the favourites to win this year’s World Cup, and the tournament could be a welcome distraction for Ronaldo considering the past couple of weeks.

    During a press conference on Monday, he was asked about the timing of his interview with Morgan, in which he responded with: “Timing is always timing. From your side it is easy to look at how we can chose timings.

    “Sometimes you write truths, sometimes you write lies. I don’t have to think about what other people think. I speak when I want.

    “The players know me really well for many years and know the type of person I am. It’s an ambitious group that is hungry and focused. So I’m sure (the interview) won’t shake the changing room’s concentration and focus.

    “I don’t have to worry what others think. I talk when I want to.”
