Ronaldo has already begun impacting the United dressing room

A former teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo poked fun at the Portuguese star's dislike of dessert by eating an apple crumble on his YouTube channel.

Ben Foster was a teammate of Ronaldo from 2005 to 2009 when the pair played for Manchester United, but now plays for fellow Premier League side Watford.

The goalkeeper has grown a large online following on his YouTube channel The Cycling GK where he posts behind-the-scenes videos.

In his latest video, documenting Watford's Premier League game away at Norwich, Foster decided to joke at the expense of his world-beating former teammate.

Despite only arriving at the club in the summer, Ronaldo has already left his mark on the United dressing room with goalkeeper Lee Grant reporting that other players were scared to have dessert when they saw the Portuguese winger skip it.

Referring to the story, Foster said: "Did you see the other day, Cristiano Ronaldo? His first team meal with the United players, didn't go have a pudding. Didn't touch it. Which made all the other players stay away from it.

"So in honour of that, I've got no pudding tonight. I'm being professional," he continued.

The 38-year-old then revealed a huge bowl of apple crumble, custard and fruit.

"What a load of rubbish, look at this bad boy! We got some apple crumble, we got some custard, a little bit of fruit on top.

"I like to live my life, I like to have a nice time alright? I'm too old for all that stuff," Foster said.

Despite the heavy dessert choice, Foster went on to play his first league game of the season and helped his team to a 3-1 victory at Premier League strugglers Norwich.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, scored his third Premier League goal in just two matches as United beat West Ham to go third in the league, behind only Chelsea and Liverpool.

Foster's Watford, by contrast, are 11th in the table with six points from five games.
