Cristiano Ronaldo sported a dodgy looking haircut in Portugal's 2-2 draw with the USA - but the Ballon d'Or winner may have had the zig-zag cut into his hair in tribute to a boy whose £50,000 brain surgery he paid for.

Ronaldo, 29, was mocked for his new do that ranked pretty badly among some of the worst haircuts seen at this World Cup.

But according to a so-far unconfirmed story on Twitter, Ronaldo's haircut wasn't his latest fashion statement, but actually a gesture to Erik Ortiz Cruz, a young Spanish boy that captured Ronaldo's heart.

Ronaldo is yet to comment on his haircut and the above tweet is the only source that suggests it was a tribute.

Erik underwent his successful surgery in March.
