But Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s short lived trip to his homeland came via Paris, where he had good company in the form of his stunning new girlfriend.
The celebrated midfielder, 31, was joined by brunette Georgina Rodriguez for an incognito appearance at Disneyland Paris, where they easily mingled with tourists while strolling across the sprawling entertainment resort.
The usually flamboyant Ronaldo looked markedly different in a shapeless winter coat, the hood of which remained tightly pulled over what appeared to be significantly longer hair - prompting speculation that the sportsman had elected to wear a wig in a bid to go unrecognized.
A baseball cap and heavily tinted sunglasses completed his low key look as he strolled arm in arm with his latest girlfriend.
The footballer has been single following a recent split with former Miss Spain Desirée Cordero Ferrer, but appeared to have moved on seamlessly with Georgina during his latest public appearance.
