The Saudi Al-Nassr football club, whose Ronaldo is captaining its football team, released the video on its account on X.

According to the 2-minute video, Ronaldo, Senegalese footballer Sadio Mane, and their Al-Nassr teammates appeared performing traditional dances with swords prepared to mark the Saudi holiday by the club.
