Hat Trick sells Ronaldo interview

Cristiano Ronaldo Meets Piers Morgan was produced for ITV1

RTP1 in Portugal and Denmark’s TV2 are among the international broadcasters to have picked up Cristiano Ronaldo Meets Piers Morgan from UK-based distributor Hat Trick International (HTI).

The one-hour-long interview with the global soccer star was conducted by Morgan and produced for ITV1 by Plum Pictures. Stuart Cabb served as director and Lisa Keane produced.

HTI has already secured sales for the interview with broadcasters worldwide, including Movistar+ in Spain, MTV in Finland, Sweden’s TV4, Medialaan in Belgium, Holland’s BNNVara, Manoto in Iran and Virgin Media Television in Ireland.

Sarah Tong, director of sales at HTI, said: “Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of the most famous footballers of our time. Therefore, it is no surprise that his frank and emotional exclusive interview, with well-known UK broadcaster Piers Morgan, is a hot property.”

The interview is a first for soccer star Ronaldo, as he has not conceded an in-depth interview of this kind to date. In the interview Ronaldo tells Morgan about his upbringing, his rivalry with Argentinian star Lionel Messi and discusses the rape allegation he faced in the US.
