Football juggling kings: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and more stars show their skills

We took a look at World Cup balls past and present here, but it's worth remembering that the balls only truly shine at the feet of some outrageously talented footballers.

These stars are able to control footballs, and even table tennis balls and wads of chewing gum, with such control that it beggars belief. They display more finesse in their feet than many people do with their hands.

Just how do they do it? Incredible talent and decades of practice, probably, although in 10-year-old Lionel Messi's case, probably only the former.

Take a look at some of the best videos and advertisements of footballers juggling below.
