Cristiano Ronaldo can’t stop laughing at his own drawing of Pepe as Man Utd star leaves Portugal pal confused
CRISTIANO RONALDO was left in hysterics ahead of Portugal’s World Cup opener against Ghana.
That’s after drawing a less-than-flattering picture of teammate Pepe.
Portugal kick off their group stage campaign on Thursday, with games to follow against Uruguay and South Korea.
Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan has been the talk of the town leading up to the tournament.
But the Manchester United misfit, 37, is showing no signs of pressure as he looks to lead his country to further glory.
And in what was presumably a team-building exercise, Ronaldo revealed he’s not the greatest artist around by drawing a picture of veteran defender Pepe.
The pair are close friends, having played together for many years with Portugal and Real Madrid.
But Pepe, 39, failed to see the funny side when Ronaldo revealed an unflattering sketch of the defender.
Ronnie was fit to burst as he howled with laughter while showing the camera the shocking drawing.
As Ronaldo was left in stitches at his efforts, Pepe looked utterly confused as he tried to comprehend the A4 monstrosity.

And fans also found the drawing hilarious as they had their say online.
One wrote: “I haven’t see him this happy since he joined Man Utd.”
Another declared: “I’ve never heard him laugh this much.”
One joked: “Better artist than Lionel Messi.”
Another added: “He’s having a fun time with Portugal. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him like this.”
Ronaldo is certain to win his 192nd cap in Thursday’s game against Ghana.
But Pepe’s spot is less certain following the emergence of Benfica teenager Antonio Silva.
There could be plenty of Premier League faces on show too, with Jose Sa, Diogo Dalot, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Joao Palhinha, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Ruben Neves hoping to feature.
