Rio Ferdinand promises to do what if Ronaldo doesn't win Ballon d'Or tonight?

With his former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo virtually unbackable at odds of 1/50 in some places, and with German newspaper BILD claiming the Real Madrid man has already won the award, this Ballon d'Or tweet shouldn't come back to haunt Ferdinand.

Still, if somehow we get a shock result in Zurich tonight, we expect a lot of cameras to appear outside Rio's house
