Lionel Messi meets Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. at Ballon d'Or event

The 2014 Ballon d'Or gala was full of the usual things: superstars in interesting suits, bland quotes delivered from a podium and Cristiano Ronaldo walking away with his second consecutive top prize after a superb season.

But what made it interesting was the fleeting meeting between Lionel Messi and Ronaldo's son.

The meeting, captured on video, was a brief and sweet conversation in which CR7 Jr. was shy in Messi's presence.

Their historic chat, per Marca.com, was a quick Q&A in which Cristiano's lad couldn't bring himself to respond to Messi's "How are you doing?" opener.

Watch the video -- it's a truly genuine moment amid a sea of FIFA pageantry.
