Cristiano Ronaldo is currently one of the most famous and talented professional soccer players in the world. It would be easy for a sports celebrity such as him to be self-absorbed and arrogant. However, during this interview with a Japanese kid who’s Portuguese is a bit shaky, Cristiano showed his true colors.
When the audience starts to laugh at the nervous little boy, the 3-time FIFA Golden Ball award holder came to his defense. He was quick to call out the audience for being inconsiderate and for criticizing the young interviewer. Speaking other languages can be hard sometimes, but as Ronaldo showed, it’s all good as long as you try your best.
Here’s our takeaway: You can’t accomplish anything without trying. Even when others may not support you, don’t give up because you’ll most likely find encouragement from somewhere else.
