He welcomed people to his Instagram page in four different languages - English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

Ronaldo seemed to support his son joining Instagram and he reacted to Cristiano Jr's first post with an emoji.
Although his following is quickly nearing one million, Cristiano Jr only followed five accounts, including his dad, Georgina, the Juventus football club, footballer Miguel Paixão and singer María Dolores.
Briefly.co.za previously reported the nine-year-old is following in his father's footsteps by winning awards for the best marker in his school.
