Kendall Jenner is reportedly "flattered" by the interest shown in her by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 31-year-old sportsman recently hinted at his admiration for Kendall, 20, by liking one of her photographs on Instagram and it's now reported Ronaldo followed that up by sending her a series of flirty messages inviting her out to party with him when she was in Barcelona, Spain last week.

A source close to the situation told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Kendall is very flattered by the attention as Ronaldo is one of the most famous men in the world."

The American model is rumoured to have recently ended her brief relationship with singer Harry Styles.

However, she is said to be undecided if she wants to pursue anything with Ronaldo, either.

The source added: "She was still hurting from Harry so welcomed the attention he was giving her but didn't want to make a big thing out of it.

"She currently doesn't have any plans to meet him or take things further for now but who knows."

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has been linked to a host of women since his five-year relationship with model Irina Shayk ended in 2015.
