Two icons in their respective sports Anthony Joshua (boxing) and Cristiano Ronaldo (football) are enjoying their holidays in Dubai and have shared some pictures in that respect.

Unified heavyweight king Joshua met Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo while on holiday in Dubai this week.

Boxing’s WBA, IBF and WBO world champion took a couple of snaps with football’s multiple-time English, Spanish and European champion during a New Year’s break in the UAE.

Ronaldo meanwhile has the luxury of Italian football’s winter break, meaning the Juventus man doesn’t return to action until January 21 in his quest to add the Serie A crown to his already astonishing record.

Juventus currently sit top of their league, nine points clear of closest rivals Napoli at the halfway stage.

AJ was with his performance trainer Jamie Reynolds when he met the former Real Madrid and Manchester United attacker.
