Cristiano Ronaldo caught standing on his tiptoes in Real Madrid team photo before 2-0 Seville victory in Cardiff

Mercurial Portuguese forward looked taller than usual at the back

Who is that giant at the back of Real Madrid's team picture before the European Super Cup? It's Cristiano Ronaldo, looking unusually tall.

The Portuguese forward has been caught out standing on his tiptoes to put himself head and shoulders ahead of his team-mates in the 2-0 win over Seville in Cardiff.

Luckily for Ronaldo, he also proved head and shoulders ahead of his team-mates in the match too, by scoring both goals in a phenomenal performance.

The 29-year-old said after the match that Madrid are aiming to win everything this season.



"We are going to try to win all the trophies," he said. "It's good to win this trophy to give confidence to the team and let’s see next Tuesday against Atletico Madrid what we’re going to do."
