Cristiano Ronaldo sings the Champions League anthem with gravitas and sincerity

Find someone who treats you the way Cristiano does the Champions League anthem

The Champions League anthem is the greatest song ever composed. This is a scientific fact. So it’s perfectly reasonable that Cristiano Ronaldo would sing it with the sincerity of someone reciting their vows on their wedding day. While his teammates stood around waiting for their match against Spurs to begin, Cristiano appeared to be in another realm as he sang along with the anthem. And when it concluded, he nodded, as if to say “Yeah, I nailed it. I. Nailed. It.”

Cristiano has done this before, but after winning the Champions League in back to back years and becoming the competition’s all-time leading scorer, it seems that he believes the Champions League anthem is his personal anthem. And at this point, it’s difficult to dispute that.

Here are the lyrics, in case you want to join in with Cristiano next time:

Ce sont les meilleures équipes
Es sind die allerbesten Mannschaften
The main event

Die Meister
Die Besten
Les grandes équipes
The champions

Une grande réunion
Eine grosse sportliche Veranstaltung
The main event


Die Meister
Die Besten
Les grandes équipes
The champions

Ils sont les meilleurs
Sie sind die Besten
These are the champions

Die Meister
Die Besten
Les grandes équipes
The champions

Meanwhile, Leo Messi has all the lyrics to “Everything is AWESOME!!!” from The Lego Movie memorized.
