Cristiano Ronaldo welcomed his fourth child into the world following the birth of Alana Martina as announced on Twitter. The mother is 22-year-old Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez, who’s been dating the Portuguese star since 2016.
“Alana Martina has just been born! Both Geo and Alana are fine! We are all very happy!” read the message accompanying the photo on Twitter.
According to Marca, Cristiano Ronaldo has informed his teammates that he believes he can catch Lionel Messi in the race for La Pichichi — La Liga's golden boot award.
So, let's break it down. First, Messi, La Liga's current goal leader. Here are Messi's first 11 goals in this La Liga campaign.
Real Madrid’s shocking 2-1 defeat to Girona yesterday marked the fourth occasion in which Los Blancos have failed to capture all three points this season, a worrying trend that’s seen Barcelona open an eight-point gap on their fiercest rivals after only 10 matches. Real’s attack has been uncharacteristically blunt this campaign, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s return of only one goal in 540 minutes of action has garnered the most attention.
Diego Maradona is a sensitive man. On Monday he caught some feelings at the FIFA The Best awards ceremony after giving the FIFA Best Men's Player award to Cristiano Ronaldo and not fellow Argentinian Lionel Messi.
"To give the Best [award] to Ronaldo and not be able to give it to Messi hurt my soul," Maradona said to TyC Sports.
Luckily for Maradona, he and Messi did get to share a tender moment at the awards gala.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a man of many brands. Probably more brands than anyone else. Let's rank them.
If this doesn’t make you want to drop everything and hop into a rondo immediately, you have no soul. Football is joy — just look at the reactions from Luka Modric and Marcelo to Cristiano Ronaldo’s reverse elastico on poor Borja Mayoral. The 20-year-old Real Madrid academy graduate doesn’t deserve this kind of brutality, but it’s definitely appreciated by all.
The game just keeps on giving, and players like Ronaldo — now fast approaching his 33rd birthday — show you that the simple joys never get old.
