MOST youngsters dream of one day emulating the skill of Cristiano Ronaldo – and now could be their best chance of learning how he does it.

The 32-year-old – fitted with a motion capture analysing every step of his free-kick routine, took part in the experiment to give gamers the opportunity to be a part of the most realistic experience to date.

Every single detail is analysed, from the amount of steps he takes in his free-kick rehearsal, to the number of breaths taken.

Ronaldo, unsurprisingly the poster boy behind FIFA’s latest and most life-like edition, will now give his fans a taste of what it’s like to be one of the best player’s on the planet when the game hits the shelves on September 29th.

The video captioned: “Deep breathing… look at my free kick at FIFA 18,” has caught the imagination of gamers and fans from around the world.

One particular fan, Mozhgan Zareh, wrote: “Cristiano Ronaldo is not just the best football player, he is one of the greatest men in our history.

“His desire to help people and fight for peace and love for all is incredible.

“Cristiano Ronaldo, I am proud to have you as my idol and you are a role model for everyone. Respect.”

It is the first time in the former Manchester United star’s career that he has been on the cover of FIFA 18.

He pipped rival Lionel Messi to feature on the popular game, with the Barcelona maestro appearing on the cover four times out of the last five years.

Speaking back in June when the announcement was made, Ronaldo said: “It is a real pleasure to be on the cover of FIFA 18. It’s a great feeling and I am grateful to have been chosen.”

You can buy FIFA 18 in stores from September 29.
