Cristiano Ronaldo was unsurprisingly named to the Ballon d'Or shortlist on Monday, joining Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer for football's top individual honour. 

On Monday, he was also along with Real Madrid team-mates to receive their sponsored Audi vehicles for the year. 

Even in an event so far removed from all of the Ballon d'Or discussion, the Portuguese couldn't escape it. 

As it was announced, the presenter alluded to the presumed favourite for the award, (translated by 101 Great Goals) "1520 horsepower, and a huge boot for you to store the Ballon d'Or." 

Ronaldo appeared slightly embarrassed by the gesture and responded, "Good joke."
