Cristiano Ronaldo has had some gold added to his latest football boots, with Nike unveiling a golden version of the Real Madrid and Portugal star's Mercurials:

The studs are gold (you'll see them if he's leaving you for dead on a run). There's a golden line running through the seven of the CR7 logo by his ankle, and there's even a golden signature monogrammed into the heel.

It's not quite Michael Johnson at the 1996 Olympics levels of gold, but it's not far off.
