Premier League cult hero Peter Crouch has recalled the hilarious moment he once bumped into Brazilian legend Ronaldo in Ibiza.

Former goalscoring icon Ronaldo is regarded as one of the finest players of his generation, having enjoyed spells with Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and AC Milan before hanging up his boots in 2011.

The legendary forward also notched an eye-watering 62 goals in 98 appearances for Brazil, helping his South American nation to two World Cup triumphs.

"I'm not sure our styles would have matched each other, but 90 minutes with him would have made my life."

Crouch also revealed how the pair once bumped into each other during a holiday.
