Real Madrid defender Ramos praises Ronaldo for classy Ballon d'Or presentation

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos was full of praise for Cristiano Ronaldo over the way he celebrated his Ballon d'Or win with fans on Saturday.

Ronaldo presented the trophy before their victory over Granada on Saturday.

Ramos said: "It's another happy day because he deserves these amazing fans and the mosaic that we saw. It doesn't just give Cristiano Ronaldo the goosebumps; it does for me, too. We're enjoying having him on such a good streak and hopefully it lasts. He deserves these ovations."

Ramos also discussed the emotional moment in which the Portuguese striker asked Agustín Herrerín, veteran matchday delegate, to step onto the pitch to take a group photograph with the team and the trophy.

"These gestures are remembered when it's an elderly person. For someone like Agustín, who lives for Real Madrid, these gestures make him really happy and feel really loved. We thought he should share it with us."
