Global sports stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Jordan have dominated their respective eras in the football and basketball worlds and the two icons recently shared a moment together when they met on vacation.
A photograph of Ronaldo posing with Jordan, arguably the finest basketball player in history, was posted to the Juventus star’s Instagram accompanied by a simple caption: “We made history.”
Looking at their respective careers, it is difficult to argue. The Portuguese star is a five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, the award for world football’s best player, and has a trophy cabinet that contains every relevant piece of silverware that the European game has to offer.
Jordan, meanwhile, was very much a history maker during his time in the #23 shirt of the Chicago Bulls. He won the NBA Championship six times in a trophy-laden career which also saw him claim the NBA’s ‘Most Valuable Player’ award five times – a similar haul to Ronaldo’s collection of Ballon d’Ors.
Ronaldo is no stranger to celebrity selfies. His Instagram page features him pictured alongside a who’s who of the sports world’s biggest names, including mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor whom he visited in Las Vegas two years ago.
