Rafael Leao, who has interacted and met IShowSpeed before knew about his fascination with the Real Madrid legend. He had talked about wanting to meet Ronaldo numerous times. Therefore, the AC Milan winger helped the streamer meet his idol.

When Ronaldo’s car was leaving the stadium, Leao stopped it. He informed the Portugal captain that Speed was waiting for him. This prompted Ronaldo to get out of his car to embrace him. Leao was heavily praised for this. One Twitter user remarked, “Rafael Leao is the true goat. He stopped the car of Ronaldo and arranged the meet-up with Speed.

Cristiano Ronaldo was praised for his humbleness in the situation as Speed’s antics could have made him awkward. But he was gracious about it and made it a memorable moment for the Youtuber.
