It will seem that greatness runs in Arturo Vidal’s household after the Barcelona midfielder’s eldest son, Alonso, was bestowed with a prestigious social media award.
Alonso — or “Monito” as he’s identified to his followers — was voted one of the best YouTuber in Chile by La Cuarta newspaper after scoring tens of millions of hits with his movies.
Certainly, the teenager’s VIP guided tour of his new bed room at Vidal’s home in Barcelona was watched by greater than 360,000 folks.
This was sufficient to earn him the Copihue de Oro award (copihue is the nationwide flower of Chile) at La Cuarta’s award gala over the weekend.
Many well-known names have appeared in Monito’s social media posts, largely as he’s lucky to have his father to work alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar, James Rodriguez, Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez.
“How proud it makes me seeing my son win first prize,” Vidal wrote on his personal Instagram account. “You’re a spectacular little one in your character, effort and love that you simply put in every single day to attempt to fulfil your goals! I like you son, and I miss you.”
This is not the primary time Vidal has professed his paternal satisfaction in Monito both, having had a particular tattoo of his diabetic son’s insulin pump a few years in the past as a beautiful little tribute.
