Well, he already has, in one sense. At his public unveiling as a Real player, no less.
His big arrival in full all-white kit to kick around footballs and give some of those footballs away to his cheering fans led to one supporter getting carried away and invading the pitch.
But James, like Ronaldo before him, kept his cool in a great display of composure - something a player on such a big stage as he needs to have.

Just ask CR7. It was only a year ago that he dealt with an overly-enamoured fan who leapt into the action as Real met Chelsea in a pre-season friendly superbly.
Now, if Colombia's World Cup star can emulate Ronaldo in the 'lead Real Madrid to glory over the next five seasons' department, he'll be absolutely golden.
