Football fans will love the Nike boots Brazil legend Ronaldo has unveiled

Amongst the collection is a revamped version of the former Real Madrid striker's glorious World Cup 1998 boots

Nike has celebrated Mercurial's 20th Anniversary by releasing a collection of stunning new boots.

Brazil legend Ronaldo proudly presented the new set which also include a throwback to the iconic silver and blue pair he wore at World Cup 1998.

As well as pink, yellow and multi-coloured boots, there's also a stunning jet back pair. Nike have named the boots released on their 20th anniversary as 'What the Mercurial'.

The black boots are the collection's show piece and their design includes a lineal history of all Mercurial's 20 years in the making.
