  • Ronaldo got himself a slice of toast using just an orange and a set of scales 

Cristiano Ronaldo  has served up yet another social media post to prove that anything Dwayne Wade can do, he can do better.

This time, breakfast was on the menu as The Ballon d’Or winner responded to the NBA star’s free-throw omelette.

Fresh from picking up ‘The Best’ prize at the FIFA award ceremony, the Real Madrid striker showed off his ball juggling skills with an orange, before placing it on a set of scales.

The piece of fruit sets off a chain reaction, and although not quite to the same scale as the trick-shot made by All Star’s bar in Bristol, the set of events had the desired effect, presenting the Portuguese with his first meal of the day – a piece of toast.

While not as flash as Wade’s effort to create an omelette by sending eggs into the frying pan from way downtown, you can’t help but feel Ronaldo’s effort is a touch more satisfying.

After all, no one wants a breakfast consisting of three broken egg shells.

The pair have picked up their rivalry on Instagram once more after it peaked at the end of last year, with the footballer curling a free-kick around a wall of snowmen to hit a target with Wade’s face on it.

And while his feud with Wade is of a friendly nature, his rivalry with Lionel Messi is a little more hostile and the 31-year-old couldn't resist having a dig at the Barcelona forward when picking up his prize. 

Ronaldo will be able to let his feet do the talking once more when Real Madrid return to action on Thursday night, when they face Sevilla in the second-leg of their Copa del Rey.

Zinedine Zidane's side take a 3-0 lead to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, their first of two matches against La Liga's second-place side in the space of three days.
