With sponsors queueing around the block to align themselves with him and a floor-length mirror never too far away, image is a very important aspect of Cristiano Ronaldo's world. We know this. This is a fact.
Still, we can't help but think that feeling the need to stand on tip-toes in order to boost his height for Real Madrid's Super Cup team photo is a little bit over the top. Just have a close look at Ronaldo's feet in the picture at the top!
Cristiano's not the only one dabbling in team photo jiggery-pokey in an effort to enhance his physique either. Indeed, just look at the behind-the-back shenanigans Dante and Jerome Boateng got up to while posing for Bayern Munich's official squad photo a few weeks ago...
