Al Nassr Captain Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his joy over meeting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Monday.

“An honour to meet again with His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman and great to be part of this panel today discussing the future of esports and the launch of the first ever #esportsworldcup that will be held in Saudi Arabia next year!” he wrote in a post on X.

Last month, the Al Nassr striker helped his side to a historic Asia Cup win in Iran.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has five UEFA Champions League titles to his name, captained the Saudi Arabian side to an opening three points in Group E.
