Former India Cricket team captain Virat Kohli has supported star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo after his Portugal side exited the ongoing FIFA World Cup on Saturday (December 10) as well.

Portugal’s exit from the tournament could mean that Ronaldo is likely to end his career without a World Cup trophy. Now 37, he was seen in tears on Saturday and received plenty of support from the fans as well.

Virat Kohli took to Twitter to share a message for Cristiano Ronaldo, who had an underwhelming campaign at the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Sharing a couple of pictures, the former Indian captain wrote:

“No trophy or any title can take anything away from what you’ve done in this sport and for sports fans around the world. No title can explain the impact you’ve had on people and what I and so many around the world feel when we watch you play.

“That’s a gift from god. A real blessing to a man who plays his heart out every single time and is the epitome of hard work and dedication and a true inspiration for any sportsperson. You are for me the greatest of all time,” posted Virat Kohli on his Instagram handle on Monday morning.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s exit from the tournament meant that he will miss out on winning the World Cup as the next time when it takes place in the USA in 2026, he will be 41 as well. The five-time Champions League winner did not start any of his game’s knockout matches as coach Fernando Santos opted to use him as a substitute as well.

Virat Kohli recently registered his 72nd international hundred

As far as Virat Kohli is concerned, he has returned in form and smashed his 72nd ODI ton on Saturday against Bangladesh. The century saw Virat move second in the standings for most hundreds at the international level, surpassing Ricky Ponting who had 71 centuries to his name as well.

However, Kohli like Ronaldo could enter his final World Cup in the ODI format next year as Team India prepare for the mega event as well. But unlike Ronaldo, Virat did win a World Cup in 2011 when India beat Sri Lanka in the final under MS Dhoni.
