Was this the only picture that they could use of young Ronaldo from Madeira?

Helping the team score twice in the Champions League final to get that trophy for Real Madrid, what a wonderful weekend it was for Christiano Ronaldo. The highest-paid athlete’s sponsor, Nike celebrated the win with a picture of young Ronaldo on Instagram, adding the ‘swoosh’ icon and the words “This boy knew.” Ronaldo shared it on his account as well.

Soon, followers on social media pointed out that in the original picture, young Ronaldo was actually wearing a crewneck by competitor adidas. Could this be a cross-promotion of the two brands? Nike has yet to comment on this.
