Brazilian Ronaldo's Unlikely Friendship With UK Popstar

Brazil legend Ronaldo da Lima seems to have a close friendship with a UK popstar, and was spotted hanging out with him this weekend.

The former Selecao striker was snapped hanging out with UK recording artist Ed Sheeran, as was seen on Instagram, and it seems the duo have been friends for a while.

Sheeran apparently met Ronaldo back in 2015, when he had a concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to promote his second album, called X.

After the concert, Ronaldo and his girlfriend invited Sheeran over to their house where they showed the singer their dance routine to his famous single, Thinking Out Loud.

"I met Ronaldo and he came to my concert and invited us to his house, which has a club in it," Sheeran told The Sun.

"We went there and he showed me my dance routine from the Thinking Out Loud video.

"He had learned it with his girlfriend, which was amazing."

Are you surprised by this friendship?
