Rory McIlroy showed that he has plenty ball skills as he accepted Cristiano Ronaldo’s #CR7challenge on Monday.
The challenge is pretty simple: Upload a clip of yourself pulling off your best football tricks, tag it #CR7Challenge with seven friends and you could smell like Ronaldo himself after he sends you a fragrance package.
Do you want to win a bundle of products from @cristianoronaldo_fragrances ? Show me your best trick, publish it with #CR7Challenge and don’t forget, challenge 7 friends! I’m nominating @nicorosberg @niallhoran @rorymcilroy @thenotoriousmma @miguelpaixao7 @chrismd10 @realcalfreezy ! My fragrance, your game ⚽️
Of course we know McIlroy is a football fan through and through, having once spent nine weeks on the sideline after injuring his ankle playing kick-around with his mates.
Naturally, he ain’t half bad with round balls…
