Footage has emerged of Cristiano Ronaldo hilariously reminding his son of bedtime during the enthralling fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk on May 18.

Ronaldo was among the high-profile guests who attended the bout at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The Al-Nassr forward was ringside alongside boxer Anthony Joshua as they enjoyed the fight.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was accompanied by his son, Cristiano Jr, who sat a few rows back from where he was. Al-Hilal forward Neymar was also present and exchanged pleasantries with Ronaldo, as picked up by TNT Sports

The Portuguese forward was heard telling Neymar he had come with his son but warned him he had school the following day.

"I have told him you can go to the boxing match, but tomorrow, you are going to get up early."

Ronaldo also asked Neymar how he was. The former PSG striker tore his ACL last year while playing for Brazil and has hardly played for Al-Hilal, who beat Ronaldo's side to the Saudi Pro League title.

What did Ronaldo tell his son during Usyk vs Fury?

Later, as the event progressed, Ronaldo was seen looking back to where his son was sitting. He made a gesture with his hand to remind him of what time it was.

Who won between Usyk and Fury?

It is not clear if the 13-year-old heeded his father's advice, but the former Real Madrid striker stayed on as Usyk beat Fury to become the undisputable heavyweight champion. The Ukrainian beat the Gypsy King by a split decision of 115-112 and 114-113 for him and 114-113 for Fury.

The Guardian reports that the two could square off again in a rematch as early as this October.

Why Usyk had to be taken to hospital after Fury clash

Sports Brief has additionally reported about why Usyk had to be rushed to hospital following his victory over Fury.

The 12 rounds ended in favour of the Ukrainian, but it came at a significant cost. He had to be rushed to hospital with a broken jaw.
