Video: Cristiano Ronaldo proves what a classy guy he is as he makes one young fan's dreams come true

He was just minutes away from one of the biggest matches of his career, but Cristiano Ronaldo made one young fan's dreams come true with a classy gesture in Lyon.

As the Portuguese players prepared for a team photograph, one young ball boy spotted his opportunity and posed beside Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo. With the Euro 2016 semi-final just minutes away you would expect Ronaldo to politely encourage the boy to leave the field of play.

But the three-time Ballon d'Or winner offered a hug - complete with smiles and laughs - and also posed for a selfie before the boy skipped away in sheer disbelief and excitement.
