During a conversation with the Brazilian legend, IShowSpeed posed an interesting question. “Your name is Ronaldo. Are you Cristiano Ronaldo’s father?” asked the American influencer. This inquiry took the renowned Ronaldo Nazario by surprise, resulting in a lighthearted chuckle.

Although initially perplexed by the question, the legendary player decided to humor IShowSpeed and agreed with a warm smile. This interaction left the online streamer completely astounded as, in the past, he had playfully referred to the Brazilian as Cristiano Ronaldo’s father in his FIFA pack-opening sessions.

Overwhelmed with excitement, he eagerly rose from his seat to extend his hand in greeting to whom he perceives as the father of his beloved player. In addition to the amusing question, IShowSpeed also asked Ronaldo Nazario the big question- which player is better, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?
