According to MARCA, throngs of football enthusiasts flooded the streets of Tehran, eagerly crowding around the Al-Nassr team bus in the hopes of catching a glimpse of their idol.

The sheer magnitude of fans effectively brought the Iranian capital to a halt, prompting the Saudi powerhouse to cancel their scheduled training session for alleged security reasons, per Sportskeeda.

If that wasn't enough, as the 38-year-old football legend made his way through the team's hotel, the enthusiastic crowd continued to shower him with unabated adoration.

A viral video circulating on social media captured several fans following the former Real Madrid star to the elevator, chanting his name and shouting out his iconic 'Siuuu'.

While the adoration he's received has been immense, Ronaldo will be eager to maintain his scorching form from the Saudi Pro League as he embarks on his debut appearance in the AFC Champions League.

Al-Nassr will clash with Persepolis at the Azadi Stadium on Tuesday, September 19, in Asia's elite competition.
