After captaining Portugal to their first major title at Euro 2016 following Real Madrid's Champions League triumph, Ronaldo stepped into the Octagon with UFC star Conor McGregor on Sunday.

Enjoying a break from football duties in the United States, a tanned Ronaldo joined the UFC featherweight champion at his Las Vegas training camp.

Ronaldo took to Instagram to share a photo of the pair's dramatic stair-down pose, writing: "Great to see u [sic] bro!!".

Preparing for a welterweight rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 next month, McGregor uploaded a picture of his own with the star-studded duo together in the ring.

The Irishman wrote a caption, which read: "My brother Ronaldo dropped by the gym today! He is an animal... I will see you for that Forbes number one spot next year."
