A 15-year-old fan named Yago Leal broke into Cristiano Ronaldo’s hotel room, according to Brazilian paper Globo.

Leal snapped a photo of the Portugal superstar and said his hero was accommodating. Ronaldo didn’t call security and instead gave Leal autographs while helping him find his way out.

“I lay in his bed, because he knew he would still lie there, and when he came, I was there. He was good to me people. Said that I had better go, but said he would not call security,” Leal told Globo.

Leal entered the room via the balcony.

Portugal was eliminated from the World Cup on Thursday despite their 2-1 win over Ghana.
