Cristiano Ronaldo Meets His Turkish Impersonator and #1 Fan: VIDEO


Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo met Gokmen, Akdogan, a 23-year-old man who makes a living impersonating Ronaldo, in a strange and funny moment after a match on Tuesday in Istanbul, Yahoo reports:

Akdogan (below), who also plays semi-professionally for lower-league side Seyhanspor, makes it his business to dress like Ronaldo, have his hair cut like Ronaldo... and apparently he even takes his free-kicks like Ronaldo. And the facial similarity is there for all to see.

Both men were all smiles when they met after Tuesday's match - a meeting which appears to have been engineered by Turkish TV - with Gokmen understandably delighted at meeting his idol, having previously said it would be a "dream" to shake the big man's hand.

One place where they don't measure up is height though - the Real Deal is a good three or four inches taller than his lookalike.

Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo Busts Fan's Nose, Gives Him Shirt


Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo offered an injured fan a shirt after his match on Tuesday, Yahoo reports:

"In the 16th minute, with the score still 0-0, Ronaldo cleared a ball into the stands that smacked a guy in the first row right in the face. The guy got a bloody nose and probably wasn't the most comfortable man in the stadium for the rest of the match. But after the final whistle blew, Ronaldo sought him out. Following a bit of confusion over who he was supposed to talk to, he gave the guy a shirt and a picture and apologized for making his nose explode."

Ronaldo took the shirt off his back to give the fan, but security swapped it out for a fresh one at the last second, unfortunately.

'It’s about power dynamics,' she said. 'We’re so used to watching men in our lives wield power. Gay porn is an opportunity to watch them get f-----.'"
