Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr shows the free-kick gene runs in the family

Like father, like son... the free-kick gene appears to have passed from one Cristiano Ronaldo to another.
Ronaldo Jnr, aged six, pulled off the perfect imitation of his dad during a recent kids' match in Spain, and his old man was pitchside to film the whole thing.
The Real Madrid ace posted a short video of his boy executing a superb set-piece to find the back of the net.

And everything about his technique was eerily familiar - from the methodical back-paces and the deep breaths before striking the ball, right through to the way in which he connected flush across the instep.
It seems the six-year-old has been studying his dad's handiwork from home.
The only thing missing was a bravado-filled celebration, though that is likely to come with age.
Ronaldo Snr was evidently impressed, writing on Instagram: 'So proud of my little man, what a goal'.

The Portuguese superstar is a doting father, and regularly shares pictures and videos of himself and his son.
Cristiano Jnr was born in the USA in 2010 but has been entirely brought up by his father.
Ronaldo Snr recently explained that he plans to tell the youngster who his biological mother is late in life.
He said: 'He is going to understand his daddy, 100 per cent he is going to understand me. I'm going to say the time when I feel that is the right time. I don't know 10, 11, 12? I don't know let's see.' 
Perhaps the more extravagant celebrations are something that come with age
