THE joy that #Jerusalema brings continues to spread across the world, this time catching the attention of Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
The popular song produced by South African dj Master KG was featured in Ronaldo’s Instagram reel which he posted on Instagram feed on Tuesday evening. The footage featured a social gathering that Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez hosted with their close friends and family.
Although the footage does not clearly show the group or the footballer performing the popular choreography from the trending Jerusalema challenge, fans were still overjoyed by the use of the song in his video and that the song was still making waves in other parts of the globe.
Master KG himself was blown away by the post and took to Twitter to express his joy over the Juventus forward participating in the Jerusalema challenge.
“I remember telling my friends weeks ago that my wish is to see @Cristiano playing Jerusalema. And today he posted it. Thank you #Jerusalema”.
The fever of the Jerusalema challenge hit the global community earlier this year in March, when the dance routine started trending across countries such as France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and Spain. The challenge is said to have been started in Angola by a group who posted the dance on social media.
The Portuguese forward was on a break after participating in the Uefa Champions League where Juventus were knocked out in the quarter-finals.
He is currently in training with the Portuguese national team in preparations for the next stage of Uefa Nations League tournament.
