As one of the world’s most exciting soccer stars, Real Madrid and Portuguese national team player, Cristiano Ronaldo was a great choice for the new challenge offered to fans around the world via social media.
Presented by Castrol EDGE, #RonaldoLIVE is an interactive soccer challenge streamed live through Facebook from a testing facility in Madrid.
In the test, Ronaldo faced a barrage of balls fired at him from chutes suspended above his head. As each ball was released, he had to receive, control and shoot into one of four goals surrounding him before the next was released.
During the live broadcast, people from six continents were participating. Over 170 countries were represented among the viewers from Mongolia to Madagascar and Luxembourg to Lesotho all vying to take on Ronaldo live.
The test was streamed live via both the Castrol EDGE and Cristiano Ronaldo Facebook pages, with fans encouraged to register for their opportunity to take part in the action. Fans who registered were randomly selected to choose Ronaldo’s target and decide which goal he had to shoot into.
The challenge took place to mark the free release on iTunes of Castrol EDGE’s award-winning documentary: Ronaldo Tested to the Limit. In the program, which was broadcast globally last year, the Real Madrid star showcased his speed, agility and soccer brain in a series of captivating challenges in the most scientific examination of a player ever undertaken.
