Reza Alirezalou, an Iranian doppelganger of Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, has gained nationwide attention.

Reza’s resemblance to the famous footballer has caused people to approach him for selfies and autographs on the streets of Tehran.

Being a footballer himself in the Tehran league, Alirezalou says fans used to comment on his similarity to the Portuguese player. He says he likes watching Ronaldo play, and that he would love to join him for advertising or be his teammate at Real Madrid football club.

His current plan is to work on an upcoming film and also start practicing again with his team. This comes just weeks after Reza Parastesh hit the headlines for looking so much like Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
