Cristiano Ronaldo is my favorite footballer and sportsperson. He inspires and motivates me. He has millions of fans around the world. He is the main reason why I started following and playing this sport. His first step towards professional football came when he signed for Portuguese Club Sporting CP. While at Sporting, he was diagnosed with a medical condition called ‘Racing Heart’. This condition was capable of derailing his footballing career and dreams. But Cristiano was determined to overcome this problem. With the help of his club, he underwent a corrective surgery. He has represented famed clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, currently playing in Juventus. At International level, he has represented Portugal at various levels. The highlight of his International career came when he captained his side to Euro 2016 title, beating France in their home. This earned his the status of ‘Legend’ in Portugal. Cristiano is a true professional. He leads a very disciplined lifestyle. He is known to follow a strict diet and exercise routine. He loves to take care of his body and fitness.

"I eat a high protein diet, with lots of wholegrain carbs, fruit and vegetables, and avoid sugary foods." Cristiano Ronaldo is also well known for his philanthropic work. He regularly takes part in social work activities, blood donation campaigns, charity activities. The 32 year old's most recent philanthropic project will be to fund the construction of a paediatric hospital in Santiago, Chile, as part of a joint venture with Italian businessman Alessandro Proto with others to follow in more South American cities. Earlier this year, the Portugal captain auctioned off his 2013 Ballon d'Or trophy for £600,000, with all the proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish foundation.
