A businessman originally from Saltcoats had a visit from a very special guest at his tailoring service in Dubai this week.

Ryan Smith of Suited & Booted Dubai had a 'pinch yourself' moment when he was tasked with suiting up none other than footballing legend Ronaldinho.

Ryan couldn't believe his luck, but said the former Barcelona and AC Milan man was extremely nice and down to earth.

He said: "I've grown up watching this guy on TV and tried copying the stuff he did as a wee guy.

"It's a proud moment when someone like him is wanting a service from you.

"Hopefully he can go and talk to all his mates now".

Ryan took the plunge to swap Saltcoats for Dubai six years ago after seeing people he knew doing well.

Not only has Ryan had footballing royalty looking for his services. Other stars from the world of sport such as boxers Amir Khan and Carl Frampton have also popped in.
