WHAT HAPPENED? Anitta is a pop megastar and was tapped to play the pre-kick-off show ahead of the Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter. In a glitzy performance, she wore a blue shirt that said "Vini Jr" on the back of it. Vinicius Junior then responded approvingly on social media.


THE GOSSIP: Vinicius Junior has emerged as a superstar at Real Madrid, although they were eliminated from the Champions League by City, losing 5-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals. The winger saw Anitta's tribute and made sure to draw attention to it on Twitter. The pair have been spotted together before and the singer has said Vinicius is one of her "best friends".

WHAT NEXT FOR VINICIUS? He will be preparing for next season, with Real Madrid set to embark on a pre-season tour that will begin with a game against AC Milan in the United States.
