There’s humbler side to Cristiano Ronaldo that most of you don’t know about. During Real Madrid’s celebrations of their 11th continental crown as Champions League winners – the Portuguese star was filmed taking photographs with fans in the disabled section of Milan’s San Siro Stadium.
And after his triumph, he made sure to spread the rewards around. According to Spanish journalist Pipi Estrada, Ronaldo donated his entire bonus of €600,000 (₦133 million) to charity. A class act by the three-time Ballon d’Or winner.
The 31-year-old who was named the world’s most charitable sportsperson last year, has supported a number of charities throughout his career, including Unicef, World Vision and Save the Children.
After an earthquake in Nepal killed over 8,000 people last year, Ronaldo donated £5million to the latter to help their aid efforts in the country.
Well done to him.
