In a video shared on social media, the players were dressed like royalty as they observed the day with beaming smiles on their faces.

This is the second year running that Ronaldo and Mane are taking part in the beautiful event, with players from other clubs, including Neymar and Karim Benzema of Al Hilal and Al-Ittihad joining the celebrations.

Saudi Arabia recruited several big names in the summer transfer window as part of activities to improve and boost interest in sports in the Asian country.

A decision that seems to be reaping the desired results as the followership of the league continues to rise across the globe.

Meanwhile, in a very competitive campaign, Al Hilal leads the Saudi Pro League table ahead of Al-Nassr with a seven-point gap, per the BBC.

Ronaldo and Mane have been key to Al-Nassr's performances this season.

Ronaldo impressed with Mane's strike

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Cristiano Ronaldo was left impressed by Sadio Mane's ability with his left foot during Al-Nassr training.

The Portuguese forward and his Senegalese teammate are preparing for their AFC Champions League Round of 16 second-leg clash against Al-Feiha.

The Knights of Najd welcome their Saudi Arabian opponents with a 1-0 advantage from the first leg after Ronaldo netted the all-important away goal.

Mane rejoins Al Nassr after AFCON exit

Sports Brief also reported that Sadio Mane has ended his vacation in Senegal to rejoin his Al-Nassr teammates in training ahead of the resumption of the Saudi Pro League.

The Saudi top-flight league resumed last week following the end of the AFC Asian Cup.

Mane was also involved in international football after participating in the Africa Cup of Nations with the Senegalese national football team.
