Aussie Hollywood star Russell Crowe visited Real Madrid's training HQ this week to meet with Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates.

Crowe had his photo taken with former Manchester United star Ronaldo and chatted with fellow Bernabeu stars Alvaro Arbeloa, Pepe, Guti and Raul during a visit to promote his new film Robin Hood.

Crowe is more used to the oval ball as owner of Australian rugby league club South Sydney Rabbitohs, but insisted he was well up to speed with the race for La Liga.

"Whenever I look at the Spanish League table, I look at where Barcelona and Real Madrid are," said the 46-year-old.

"I have a rugby team in Australia it's always interesting to see how other clubs work, especially the biggest in the world."

Crowe had earlier revealed on Twitter that it was his plan to get Ronaldo to wear a Rabbitohs hat and the Portugal winger was happy to oblige.

"Mission accomplished Christiano (sic) Ronaldo proudly wore the running rabbit," he later Tweeted after also wearing a Rabbitohs hoodie when posing for photographers.
