The boy who saw Ronaldo up close

Hundreds of soccer fans stormed into a hotel on Monday, hoping for a glimpse of star player Cristiano Ronaldo after he arrived with his Saudi teammates ahead of a game. Chanting “Ronaldo, Ronaldo,” the fans pushed past police, filling the corridors and public spaces of the Espians Palace Hotel. Ronaldo arrived on his first visit with the Saudi football club Al Nassr, which is set to play Persepolis  on Sept. 19.
