Ronaldinho was tickled pink as he stepped out in London with a bright Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The soccer star was in London at Niketown Oxford Street for the launch of a new cleat.

Although the big crowd turn-out was down to the Nike Tiempo Legend 10 Elite, there’s no denying that Ronaldinho’s arrival car turned a few heads.

The Barbie pink Rolls-Royce Phantom sported the signature Nike swoosh on either side and steered Ronaldinho and internet personality Clint 419 through the crowds.

With its bubble gum pink exterior, the car bore a striking resemblance to the shoes being released that day.

What are the Nike Tiempo Legend 10 Elite?

The trainers themselves are going for a cool $240, and also come in grey, metallic gold, turquoise and black.

Nike‘s website read: “Even Legends find ways to evolve. The latest iteration of these Elite cleats has all-new FlyTouch Plus engineered leather.

“Softer than natural leather, it conforms to your foot and works with All Conditions Control (a grippy texture even in wet weather), so you can dictate the pace of your game.

“Lighter and sleeker than any other Tiempo to date, the Legend 10 is for any position on the field, whether you’re sending a pinpoint pass through the defense or tracking back to stop a breakaway.”

How famous is Ronaldinho?

It’s no surprise that Ronaldinho can still draw a crowd, with or without his pink Rolls Royce.

With a career spanning more than 25 years, the Brazilian legend has played on teams such as AC Milan and Barcelona.

With 205 goals to his name and footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi citing him as an inspiration, it’s no wonder he’s still got that star power.
