Cristiano Ronaldo gave a young boy a moment he will never forget as he allowed him to sit with him and his Juventus team-mates during Sunday's International Champions Cup clash against Tottenham.

Ronaldo started the game in Singapore and gave his side a 2-1 lead with a cool finish in the 60th minute after goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Erik Lamela.

He then looked rather miffed to be substituted just three minutes later, sharing an awkward handshake with new manager Maurizio Sarri.

However, he seemed in good spirits moments later as he took his place on the bench alongside Leonardo Bonucci.

And he showed his kind side as a young fan took the opportunity to run over and meet his idol.

Ronaldo gave the boy a high-five before having a small chat and then inviting him to sit in front of him and his fellow Juve stars with the game ongoing.

Speaking about the moment following the defeat, Sarri said: 'I thought security was going to come for him. 

'When it is a kid it is not a pitch invasion, it is a moment of joy.'

The youngster looked remarkably relaxed as the group watched on from the sidelines but he will have been disappointed by what he saw on the pitch.

Lucas Moura equalised for Spurs after a brilliant piece of play from debutant Tanguy Ndombele before Harry Kane won the game in injury time.

The England striker showed his quality with a moment of absolute magic, catching the goalkeeper out with a brilliant strike from the halfway line.
