Sorry, it was the Catalan-coloured elephant in the room.

You can’t talk about Real Madrid’s record-breaking, three-time Ballon D’or winner Cristiano Ronaldo without immediately thinking of his equally superhuman rival Lionel Messi, currently the world’s best player in the eyes of Blatter and co.

It’s not just Messi v Ronaldo – it’s Nike vs Adidas, Barca vs Real, FIFA vs Pro Evo and Good guy vs bad guy - and it’s all bound to be at the heart of this incredible looking sports documentary about CR7.

Filmed over 14 months with unprecedented access into Ronaldo’s inner circle, this documentary from the makers of Amy and Senna promises more than underwear shoots and overzealous goal celebrations. It will delve deep into the psyche of the footballer and chart his extraordinary journey by speaking to those closest around him.

Self-aware, (“some people hate me, some people love me”), wryly funny and lacking none of that trademark ego, it will be nothing but watchable.

Ronaldo will be released in cinemas worldwide 9 November
