The video entitled The Switch which went live today, shows Portugal and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo taking a bump to the head after landing in the crowd during a match for his country and ending up swapping places with ball-boy Charlie Lee, who it transpires is from Sheffield.

Filmed at various locations around the city, the promotional video shows young Charlie pick up Ronaldo's skills in playing five-a-side with his mates before making the step up to Sunday League and eventually playing for Manchester City and England.
