In a first timer, Sophia, the human like robot, met Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in his house and had a little chat with the 33-year-old back in March.

Designed by Hong Kong firm Hanson Robotics, Sophia was introduced and activated in 2015. She speaks English.

She is the first robot to gain citizenship of a country after Saudi Arabia gave her nationality last year.

Ronaldo was excited to meet her and was amazed by Sophia’s intelligent after she told her some facts about him.
