Portuguese newspaper A Bola has taken inspiration from Star Wars to promote its coverage of the first leg of Portugal's World Cup qualifying playoff tie with Sweden tonight. It's painted Cristiano Ronaldo as Luke Skywalker and Zlatan as Darth Vader (his nose is too large to accommodate a helmet).

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Ronaldo has fantastic physique

While on a promotional trip to Madrid this week, bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger praised Cristiano Ronaldo's sculpted body.

He has a fantastic physique and great abs. He's in amazing shape. That's why he's such a great footballer.

I don't think he's interested in competing in Mr Olympia. Ronaldo wants to be the best player in the world and what I wanted was to win the Mr Olympia title. They're two very different sports!
