Sometimes, you need unconventional skills to keep business and first class running smoothly.

In a new, light-hearted promotional video, Emirates cabin crew reveal their hidden football talents at 40,000ft as Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is joined on board a Dubai to Madrid flight by Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Toni Kroos.

One scene sees Ramos walking to the First Class Shower Spa and he drops his wash bag. A cabin crew member does some "keepie-uppies" with the bag before before passing it back to the Spaniard.

Next, Marcelo is emotional from watching a sad film and his teammate has had enough. The German Kroos throws a pillow at the sobbing Brazilian left-back, but a well-positioned crew member makes a great save.

Finally, Bale and Ramos are enjoying a drink at the OnBoard Lounge, but the Welsh winger knocks over a glass of water. Not to worry, another sticks her foot out and brings the glass under control - barely spilling a drop.

The Emirates cabin crew clearly impressed. Now at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, striker Karim Benzema walks into the home changing room to find out he has some new teammates.

The video ends with Ramos marching a new-look Madrid out on to the pitch.
