The world’s best footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has done a noble deed while he and his countrymen campaign at the World cup by sporting a new hairstyle as homage to a boy who recently underwent brain surgery.

The hairstyle is a zig-zag on the right-hand side of the Portuguese’s head that attracted onlookers during his country’s game against the USA on Monday. The boy, Erik Ortiz has scars left on his head following the surgery he had three months ago, and Ronaldo’s hairstyle portrays the boy’s permanent scars.

Ronaldo is also said to have paid for the successful surgery which cost around £50 000. The Real Madrid star is always seen to have a devilish character compared to Barcelona’s Lionel Messi who is always looked at with a halo above his head, because he’s not as haughty as the Portuguese superstar.

But the 29 year-old does have a philanthropic side, which he chooses not to show to the public, who seem to have made their own conclusions about him.

He showed his good hand to the Ghanaian team when he sent in a beautiful cross in the dying moments of his team’s game against the US, which was headed home by striker Silvestre Varela to give the Africans some hope at this world cup. But the patriotic devil in him could’ve done it to keep Portugal’s waning light lit in Brazil.
