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?
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.
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?
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.
Could you call his bluff? Football is just one of Ronaldo’s talents. Ronaldo is a huge poker fan and has even played some of the best poker players in the world. He signed a deal with PokerStars in 2015, and he has since become an ambassador for the company.
Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad fame went head to head with the football star. As you may have guessed, Ronaldo came out on top.
