Cristiano Ronaldo flipbook fan art goes viral through YouTube

A series of painstakingly constructed flipbook animations of Portugese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo have gone viral following their publication on YouTube.

Approaching half a million people have now taken time out to view the dedicated fan’s efforts, an as yet unidentified artist who goes by the name Etoilec1.

The animations each detail a key moment in the strikers career, showing the footballer in the distinctive red of Manchester United as he kicks the ball in the back of the net and at Real Madrid, where he was purchased for a world-record fee in 2009.
