Ronaldo is a 6'1" (1.86m) very popular soccer player and also the highest paid
footballer in the world. And despite his gorgeousness I had never heard of
him. I am an American, and we don't know what soccer is. Also, I hate
sports. I don't even know what a soccer ball is! But I know a great looking
jock when a see one. A great looking jock who likes to be photographed shirtless!

According to Wikipedia "Cristiano Ronaldo, is a Portuguese footballer who plays as a winger or a forward for Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid and serves as captain of the Portuguese national team. Ronaldo is the most expensive player in football history after moving Manchester United to Real Madrid in a transfer deal worth US $32m. In addition, his contract with Real Madrid makes him the highest-paid football player in the world.
Ronaldo was born on 5 February 1985 in Santo Antonio, a neighborhood of Funchal, Madeira, the youngest child. His second given name, "Ronaldo", was chosen after then-U.S. president Ronald Reagan, who was his father's favorite actor. I guess his dad never saw "Bedtime for Bonzo."
Ronaldo's father died of an alcoholism-related liver condition in September 2005 at age 52 when Ronaldo was 20. Ronaldo's mother and Manchester United coach have stated that he does not drink alcohol as a result, and he has received libel damages over a Daily Mirror article that reported him drinking heavily in a nightclub while recovering from an injury in July 2008. Ronaldo's autobiography, titled Moments, was published in December 2007. Along with one of his sisters, Ronaldo opened a fashion boutique under the name "CR7" (his initials and shirt number). There are currently two CR7 store locations, both of which are in Portugal; one in Lisbon and the other in Madeira.
In 2012, SportsPro rated Ronaldo as the fifth most marketable athlete in the world, but he slipped to eighth position in 2013 with Brazilian star Neymar topping both lists. A January 2014 report on the market value of Lionel Messi rated Messi as "five times more marketable" than Ronaldo. In May 2014, international sports market research company Repucom named Ronaldo the most marketable football player in the world. In December 2013, Ronaldo opened a museum, Museu CR7, in his hometown of Funchal, to house trophies and memorabilia of his life and playing career, and launched a dedicated social networking website and mobile app. At a ceremony held at the Bel�m Palace in January 2014, President of Portugal An�bal Cavaco Silva raised Ronaldo to the rank of Grand Officer of the Order of Prince Henry, "to distinguish an athlete of world renown who has been a symbol of Portugal globally, contributing to the international projection of the country and setting an example of tenacity for future generations". In April 2014, he was named in the Time 100, Time Magazine 's annual list of the most influential people in the world. In May 2014, Ronaldo appeared with his Russian model girlfriend Irina Shayk on the front cover of Vogue's Spanish edition
