Cristiano Ronaldo’s talents extend far beyond his football pitch. His chiseled good looks have made him the darling of many fashion houses, including Nike, Calvin Klein, Armani, and a host of others. Being in high demand, Cristiano has had the privilege of charging a pretty (make that very pretty) penny to model fashion lines.
He has reportedly earned around twenty-five million dollars a year to do so — over and above all of his other salaries and endorsements.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic wax figure, valued at a scorching $150,000, made its debut in late October 2021 at the Blue Waters Island in Dubai.
Let’s be honest for a minute here — with a model this hot, we’re surprised the wax does not melt!
Like its famous model, the sculpture made a bit of a stir as it has Cristiano wearing his now retired Juventus jersey and not his current Manchester United attire. Awkward!
King of Facebook
Talk about putting the face into Facebook! Cristiano Ronaldo made social media history when his Facebook account soared past the ten million followers mark in early 2010. Since then, Cristiano has racked up a staggering one hundred and twenty million followers — a first for a non-American public figure.
If Facebook statistics are to be used to measure popularity, these figures would mean that Ronaldo is hands-down the single most famous athlete in the world.
The Ultimate Influencer
It’s safe to say that Cristiano Ronaldo takes the Instagram crown. With a follower count soaring over the four hundred million mark, Cristiano made more money through Instagram than when he played for the club Juventus by almost fifteen million dollars!
How does Cristiano achieve such an income? For any of us with an Instagram account wondering how to generate such a profit, it’s simple, really: charge a cool one million dollars per product placement as Cristiano does!
As the list of positives about Cristiano Ronaldo grows, to top off being dashingly good-looking and obscenely wealthy, he is also well-known for being incredibly in touch with his feelings. So in touch with his feelings that his family and teammates have given him the nickname “Cry baby”!
Not one to shy away from his emotions, Cristiano is known to cry openly at any defeat. The “Cry baby” has a downside, too – apparently, Cristiano has a history of temper tantrums!
