Cristiano Ronaldo is the definition of a ‘triple threat’. He can’t act, sing or dance, but dammit he can shoot, dribble and pass! He also has a freakish knack for free kicks; the best I’ve ever witnessed. Love him or loathe him (England stand up?) you can’t deny his abilities. His list of accomplishments sound made up and I question whether he’s actually human or some kind alien from the planet Futbolia. Check out the little highlight reel I put together last night:

Full name: Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro
Date of birth: February 5, 1985 (age 25)
Place of birth: Funchal, Madeira, Portugal
Height: 1.86 m (6 ft 1 in)
Playing position: Winger/Forward
Current club: Real Madrid


– The most expensive player in football history after having transferred to Real Madrid from Manchester United in a deal worth $132m usd
– His contract with Real Madrid is believed to have made him the highest-paid football player in the world
– In 2008, Ronaldo won his first UEFA Champions League title, and was named player of the tournament
– He was named the FIFPro World Player of the Year and the FIFA World Player of the Year, in addition to becoming Manchester United’s first Ballon d’Or winner in 40 years
– Ronaldo became Manchester United’s first-ever Portuguese player when he signed for $19.13m usd after the 2002–03 season.

– When he was 15, Ronaldo was diagnosed with a racing heart, a condition that might have forced him to give up playing football. He had an operation in which a laser was used to cauterize the area of his heart that was causing the problem
