One thing that's always struck World of Sport about the internet is the endless number of people out there who have extreme ingenuity, a great sense of humour, astounding technical skills, and plenty of time on their hands to exercise them.

It's just that combination of attributes that have come together in this new video, which sees a digital version of Real Madrid and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo popped into the Grand Theft Auto IV video game.

Beautiful stuff. If you thought Ronaldo was destructive when tearing through opposition defences, wait until you see him unleashing a rocket launcher on the NYPD down Manhattan's Fifth Avenue.
