In 2020, Ronaldo became the first footballer to be added to the Forbes Billionaires list. He can have anything he wants now, so why not get a private jet? The big question is, what plane is worthy of a Forbes-approved football champion?
A 2006 Gulfstream G200 seems like a reasonable choice. It was refurbished in 2019 and features three seats that transform into a bed. It even has a fax machine. Who the heck is Ronaldo faxing these days?
Good-guy Ronaldo had many philanthropic efforts. When he sold his Ballon d'Or awards he got a chilled 530,000 great British pounds which he gave to the Make-a-Wish foundation. Not to worry, though; he has more Ballon d'Ors!
His first he earned in 2008 while playing for Manchester united. Ronaldo would go on to earn another three while playing for Real Madrid between 2013 and 2016. Ronaldo’s capacity for charity is prolific!
Ice Bucket Challenge
From one look at his Instagram profile, Ronaldo doesn’t seem to need a reason to strip down to his boxers. The ice bucket challenge was an honorable craze.
The initial aim was to raise money for ALS. After stripping down at a Madrid practice session to have ice water dumped over him, Ronaldo nominated Lil’ Wayne, J Lo, and Beyonce for the #icebucket challenge. Nice-guy Ronaldo does it again. This time in his underwear.
The Man Kicks Hard
At a friendly game at Vitality Stadium against Bournemouth, Ronaldo sent a free-kick into the crowd. A boy, age 11, was there to block it. The kid got a free Real Madrid shirt and, of course, it was signed by Ronaldo. A similar incident occurred at a Champions League game when Ronaldo launched a ball toward the stands.
What can we say? The man knows how to kick, but maybe he shouldn't direct the ball towards the audience?
You Get a Watch, You Get a Watch!
Football bonuses are known to be astronomical. This was the case when the Real Madrid players were awarded their tenth Champions League title. Ronaldo stepped up the celebrations when he bought each of his teammates a luxury watch by Bulgari.
Each watch even had the player's name engraved on the back case! One of these watches cost £5000 — mere pocket change for a rock star.
