Cristiano Ronaldo is a big fan of Lionel Messi - Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr that is.

A video of the cheeky offspring of the Real Madrid forward has emerged in which he asks his grandmother about the Barcelona star.

It doesn't appear to go down well with Ronaldo Snr's mother, Maria Dolores, who tells the five-year-old: "I don't want to know about Messi".

She then goes on to list the achievements of her Real Madrid striker son, pointing out that he's won the Ballon d'Or three times and the Golden Shoe four times.

The footage is understood to have been filmed whilst Ronaldo Snr was picking up the latest of the latter award on Tuesday. Ronaldo was collecting the Golden Shoe at a ceremony thanks to the 48 La Liga goals he scored last season.

That Ronaldo Jnr is a fan of Messi is nothing new, with footage from the Ballon d'Or ceremony earlier this year showing the youngster looking star-struck by the Argentinian before going over to meet him.

A documentary focusing on Ronaldo is due for release next month.
