Cristiano Ronaldo given a Ballon d’Or cake so he can eat his disappointment

Dirty Tackle


For the fourth straight year, Cristiano Ronaldo watched Lionel Messi collect the Ballon d'Or in January. So to remind him of this fact, a group of women from a bakery in Lisbon presented him with a Ballon d'Or made of cake at Portugal's training facility in Obidos.

They held up signs and wore special shirts that read "we make your dreams come cake." Which sounds vaguely dirty. Still, it was a lovely gesture to show Cristiano how much he is appreciated in his homeland. And sure, even with the addition of the cake to the real Ballon d'Or Ronaldo won in 2008, Messi still has twice as many. But are any of Messi's edible? No. So when there's an international food shortage we'll see whose collection is more impressive.
