Cristiano Ronaldo was presented with his fourth Ballon d'Or at the Bernabéu ahead of the Liga game against Granada and there to show their support were some ex-Real Madrid players: Kopa, Gento, Figo, Zidane, Ronaldo and Owen had all been Galacticos in their day.

As Ronaldo and Owen, old teammates from the 2004/05 season, got back together there was clearly still some fun to be had and later the Englishman joked on Twitter about the current size of the 40-year old Brazilian.

In their day they were two striker that most teams in the world would have begged to have. These days, we can watch and admire their goalscoring feats on DVD.
