Although they adore Real Madrid and Portugal hero Cristiano Ronaldo, Dimitri Payet's children have been told they are not allowed to utter his name in the wake of the Euro 2016 final.

The four-time Ballon d'Or winner was a pivotal part of the Portugal side that ended Payet's dreams of international glory as they beat France in the final.

And while the West Ham star admits his kids are big fans of Ronaldo and his Barcelona counterpart Lionel Messi, the attacker insists they are not allowed to mention the former.

"They love Ronaldo and Messi. Since Euro 2016, though, they have no right to pronounce the name of Ronaldo!"
