Atletico Madrid whiz Joao Felix: Cristiano Ronaldo forever my idol

Atletico Madrid whiz Joao Felix says Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo remains his "idol".

While Ronaldo missed out on the Ballon d'Or this year, Felix was named the 2019 Golden Boy.

He told A Bola: "Cristiano is an idol of my childhood, an example in all respects for me.

"When I was still a child, he was already the best footballer in the world. CR7 is unique and unrepeatable, he is writing the history of football.

"I liked hearing him speak well of me, but I still see a lot of distance between us."
