Dos Santos Cristiano Ronaldo Aveiro was named after Ronald Reagan, the favourite actor of his father, whom he greatly admired.

Cristiano Aveiro is the youngest son of José Dinis Aveiro and Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro.

Ronaldo had some unsuitable nicknames as a child:

Cristiano was diagnosed with a condition known as racing heart when he was 15 years old.

Ronaldo used to train in the gym as a teen, using weights on either foot and then dribbling with the ball.

 Ronaldo's free kick travels at a speed of 130 km/h.

Ronaldo's jump has five times the power of a wild Cheetah jumping in full flight.

If you think you're a gym rat, consider this: Ronaldo lifts approximately 23,055 kgs of total weight during his training session, which is equivalent to lifting 16 Toyota Prius cars.

Despite the fact that his childhood friend is now unemployed, Fantrau now lives like a wealthy man, with a house and a car.

Ronaldo signed a lucrative contract with Real Madrid, making him the highest-paid footballer in the world.

Ronaldo is said to have paid for a 9-year-old boy's cancer treatment, demonstrating that he has a generous and compassionate heart.

"We've had some fantastic No. 7s, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, some wouldn't want that jersey, but even at 18, his confidence was high."

Ronaldo debuted his fashion boutique in Madeira, Portugal, in 2006. His initials and shirt number are represented by the shop CR7.

 In 2008, CR7 opened a store in Lisbon featuring jeans with leather pockets, patented buckled loafers, and diamond-studded belts.

Ronaldo, unlike many other sports stars today, has no tattoos and has no plans to get one anytime soon because he regularly donates blood.
