Cristiano Ronaldo clearly enjoys nothing more than mixing it with the biggest names in the music business after catching up with pop star Rihanna backstage at her concert in Lisbon.

Earlier this month The Real Madrid forward met British band One Direction at the Spanish club's training ground last week before flying to his native Portugal to watch Rihanna - whose hits include Only Girl in the World and Umbrella - perform on the latest leg of her tour.

One Direction, the biggest boy band in the UK, revealed they were invited to their own training session with Ronaldo and Co.

And it was not an opportunity they were about to pass up as they took time out from their whistle-stop European tour to train with Mourinho's men in the Spanish capital.

At the end of their brief kickabout, three of the band members enjoyed a meet-and-greet with the manager, who presented them with a Real shirt, and the players.

'They told us that we had the opportunity to come to see the Real Madrid players and that was very exciting for us,' revealed Niall Horan.
'It is amazing to see how they train and see so many such good players.

'We are big football fans and Real Madrid are one of the best teams on the planet.'
Fellow bandmate Liam Payne added: 'Cristiano Ronaldo is my favourite player, he is one of the best in the world.'
