Cristiano Ronaldo breaks down in tears in a TV interview after seeing a video clip of his late father.
The emotional moment took place during his revealing interview with Piers Morgan, which is being shown on UK television on Tuesday night.
The Juventus star was reduced to tears after seeing a footage of his late father Jose Dinis Aveiro talking of the pride he felt for his son.
Ronaldo was just 20 when his father died of liver failure at the age of 52 after battling alcoholism.
He couldn’t suppress his emotion as he explained how his dad didn’t live to see his historic achievements in the game.
Ronaldo, crying, said: “I never saw the video. I never saw that video. Unbelievable.”
Asked how it felt to hear his father talking of his pride at his son’s achievements, the former Real Madrid player added: “Yes, a lot.
“I think the interview would be funny, but I didn’t expect to cry. But I never saw these images. I don’t know where you… I have to have these images to show my family.
“But I really don’t know my father 100 per cent. He was a drunk person. I never spoke with him, like a normal conversation. It was hard.”
