The trailer for the first authorised documentary on Ballon d’Or winner and celebrated midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo is finally out!

Whether you’re a Messi or a Ronaldo fan, or maybe just a football lover -- you’d want to see ‘Ronaldo’. To be released on November 9 this year, the film promises to explore the Real Madrid star’s life in all its entirety.

It’s no mean feat that a player who is at the peak of his career and living the dream, loved and hated by football fans all over the globe, has a biopic at the age of 30.

The two-minute trailer gives a glimpse of what it takes to be one of the most iconic and, debatably, the world’s greatest footballer.

But wait, it doesn’t end there. If Cristiano Ronaldo -- the player – is often looked upon as merely a sculpted football god who tends to enjoy the limelight, the documentary gives him a human touch.

The film, reportedly made over a period of 14 months, peeks into his personal life and seemingly attempts to unravel the 30-year-old’s past by tracing his journey to fame, including his humble beginning and familial relations.

There’s something heartwarming about seeing a world-famous footballer do push-ups with his son on his back.

However, the trailer does not ignore the former Manchester United player’s almost-religious work ethic. Speckled with a Portuguese accent, Ronaldo sums it up by saying, “Winning. That’s the most important to me. It’s as simple as that.”

Ronaldo scored the 500th goal of his career in just 753 matches in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win against Malmo in the Uefa Champions League on Thursday.

Manchester United’s former Number 7 has won nine trophies in six years with the Red Devils and seven with the Spanish club since he joined in 2009. Besides, he beat rivals Lionel Messi and German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to win the Fifa Ballon d’Or in 2014, the second of his career.

Here’s hoping the movie is as exciting as the trailer.
