Another day another Cristiano Ronaldo gimmick. #laughs

Prying eyes (lenses) recently noticed Portuguese Real Madrid star player Cristiano Ronaldo standing on his toes during pre-match team photos and couldn't beg but as why the 6.1 ft tall Portuguese and four-time Ballon d'Or winner stands that way during team photos after realizing the gimmick didn't begin recently but way back to his days at Sporting Lisbon in 2002.
I take it upon myself to provide the answer - he wants to appear taller. 
Quite funny.
