He is known as the greatest footballer of all time.
And Cristiano Ronaldo passed on some wisdom to his Portugal teammate and best friend Jose Semedo during a sauna session on Tuesday – just hours after his £1.7million Bugatti Veyron was involved in a crash.
Taking to his Instagram account, the football legend, 37, posted a snap of the pair in deep conversation.

Despite only finding out about horror smash of his beloved car hours earlier, the Manchester United looked cool and collected.
Defender Jose, 37, who once played with Charlton Athletic posted an identical image of the pair, while captioning the shot: ‘Always a privilege to hear advice from the best in the game.’
The footballers are understood to have forged a close bond since their younger playing days and have holidayed regularly together in the Mediterranean.
Bang: The Manchester United striker’s 900-horsepower Bugatti crashed into a wall, injuring no one
It comes after reports suggested on Monday night that Cristiano had just left his Majorcan holiday home for a day out with his family when one of his bodyguards crashed his car.
The dad-of five was in another vehicle in a small convoy with his loved ones when his employee came off the road and smashed into a stone wall.
Respected island newspaper Cronica Balear said the unnamed bodyguard got out of the car to continue his journey and left other staff employed by the Man United footballer at the scene to receive the police.

It was not immediately made clear where the Portuguese international could have been heading, but he has been pictured enjoying days out with his family on his £5.5million Azimut Grande superyacht which is moored in Port Adriano in the south-west of Majorca.
Cristiano is believed to be renting a luxury villa near the scene of Monday morning’s accident on a minor road near Joan March Hospital in the municipality of Bunyola.
The damaged Bugatti was later taken away on a tow-truck covered in a blue tarpaulin.
Cronica Balear said security employees left to look after the car while they waited for the police to arrive ‘had done everything possible to make sure curious locals who recognised the Bugatti as Cristiano’s tried to take photos.

The identity of the person at the wheel has not yet been revealed, but it is well-known Cristiano Ronaldo and his family are protected in Cheshire by Portuguese twins who served as soldiers with an elite special forces unit in Afghanistan.
The strongmen have been named as Sergio and Jorge Ramalheiro, who went on to become part of a Portuguese close protection unit tasked with watching over the likes of politicians and judges after serving in Afghanistan.
It is not known if the crash involved either Sergio or Jorge Ramalheiro.
Portuguese celeb magazine Flash said the twins, part of a set of triplets, had been hired by Cristiano after they asked to go on unpaid leave from the PSP police to pursue other interests.
The third brother, named as Alexandre, is still understood to be working as a police officer.
Spanish police confirmed yesterday afternoon they had no information to suggest Cristiano had been in the car at the time.
One well-placed source said: ‘The car smashed into a wall but there was only material damage with no-one injured and the driver accepted full responsibility for what happened.
‘The information about who was behind the wheel and what occurred is registered on a police database and is there for a court or officers to access if any further investigations need to be conducted.
‘But it is more a case of the information needing to be registered so the owner of the property that was damaged can put in a compensation claim and use the police report as a back-up in case there is any dispute down the line about how the damage was done.’
