ANYTHING you can do, Dad…

That’s how the saying goes and Cristiano Ronaldo Jr certainly fits the bill.

For he produced a stunning overhead kick of his own to match Ronaldo’s spectacular strike past Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon last week.

Not only that – Cristiano Jr is pretty mean at taking free kicks, too.

The seven-year-old produced his ‘worldy’ overhead kick at the end of the La Liga derby showdown between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

The match at the Bernabeu ended in a 1-1 draw, with Ronaldo, 33, opening the scoring for Real with a volley in the 53rd minute.

 How about this for a free kick stance... remind you of anyone?

Antione Griezmann replied four minutes later – and then the fun really started!

Cristiano Jr took to the field and gave a terrific demonstration of his burgeoning soccer skills.

Fans quickly compared his flying overhead effort with the one produced just days before by dad, which was ranked as of the greatest ever Champions League goals.

Spanish news outlet Marca asked English readers to vote and Ronaldo bagged 51 per cent of the poll.

Cristiano Jr, meanwhile, is no stranger in trying to emulate his famous father.

He recently copied Ronaldo’s iconic topless celebration, flexing his muscles and smiling for the camera just like his dad.

Well, if Cristiano Jr’s pose and run up is anything to go by, he’ll soon be mastering the technique perfected by the great man himself.

No kidding… his pre-kick routine is spot on in adopting the same stance and pose as he strikes for goal.

There is no doubt about it – as far as the Ronaldos are concerned the apple didn’t fall far from the tree…
