Cristiano Ronaldo impressed EA Sports staff with his work rate during his motion capture shoot for FIFA 18, but was told to slow down after he slipped during the 10-minute session.
The 32-year-old is the cover star for the game that will be released on September 29 and has been helping to ensure that his movements are as realistic as possible.
Sam Rivera, the Associate Producer for FIFA, was impressed by Ronaldo's professionalism during the shoot for FIFA, but admitted afterwards that he pushed himself so hard that he needed to be reined in during the shoot in Madrid.
"Ronaldo was a very different experience. In the time he was on the field, for the 10 minutes that we were capturing him, he was sweating. We had to even tell him to slow down because when he was turning, he was slipping and we didn’t want Ronaldo to get injured as we would be in trouble with Real Madrid," said Rivera.
