Sure, fancy cars, mansions and lavish vacations are a few of the places famous footballers drop their cash but a lot of the great ones are also known for putting their large bank accounts to more worthwhile causes. Kylian Mbappe made everyone with a pulse explode with good feels this week when he announced he would be donating his $350,000 World Cup bonus to charity.
Before jetting off to sign with Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo bestowed quite a gift on the staff at the Costa Navarino resort where he had been spending vacation time with family and friends after Portugal’s World Cup exit.
The 33-year-old was so impressed with the service that he left a $23,000 tip at the luxury spot, an amount he requested be split among the hotel employees prior to his unveiling at Juventus.

Considering Ronaldo’s weekly salary at Real Madrid was $428,374 (not including his earnings from sponsorships), the tip was barely a dent in his wallet. This is probably the equivalent to $5 for the average human. Regardless, he definitely made the day (and then some) for these unsuspecting employees.
Love him or hate him, Cristiano Ronaldo's following just keeps on growing.
