The Tennis star attempted to replicate probably the most iconic goal celebration in football and was able to earn CR7’s praise.

Novak Djokovic is one of the most animated sportsmen in the world, with the athlete having a knack for impersonating other popular sports personalities.

The World No. 1, who has won 17 Grand Slams, has mimicked Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Maria Sharapova, Goran Ivanisevic, and Boris Becker in the past.

Cristiano Ronaldo is his most recent target, with the Serbian ace imitating the victory leap which the superstar footballer frequently does after scoring goals.

He almost perfectly copied Ronaldo’s celebratory move as he started off with a powerful scream, then thrust both his arms downwards in a slanting manner with force, and finally ended it with a powerful ‘Si!’.

Djokovic tagged CR7 in the video posted by the ATP Tour’s official Twitter account asking, “@Cristiano how did I do?” Ronaldo, a man hard to impress, responded by commenting “Not bad bro”.

The Juventus man has acquaintances from several different sports, with former MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov and Jamaican sprinter Usain Bold two of the most notable ones.
