Ronaldo, 29, was mocked for his new do that ranked pretty badly among some of the worst haircuts seen at this World Cup.

But according to a so-far unconfirmed story on Twitter, Ronaldo's haircut wasn't his latest fashion statement, but actually a gesture to Erik Ortiz Cruz, a young Spanish boy that captured Ronaldo's heart.

 

Ronaldo is yet to comment on his haircut and the above tweet is the only source that suggests it was a tribute.

Erik underwent his successful surgery in March.
