Ronaldo has a museum dedicated to him. Museu CR7 is in Madeira, Portugal features a bronze statue and a few more life-like mannequins. The museum was his brother Hugo’s idea.
Hugo suggested it as a place for all his trophies to be displayed. Why not? There are a lot of them, and it beats having them scattered around. A plaque near the bronze statue says “Melhor Jogador Do Mundo,” which means “Best Player in the World.”
CR7 Eau de Toilette
When do you know you have arrived? You have your own fragrance, of course. In 2017 Ronaldo released his scent named CR7 Origins. French perfumer Pierre Gueros composed this symphony of smells.
Apparently, it is inspired by the notes of his birthplace and represents the true essence of the man. Ronaldo has revealed that it is his secret weapon, and the cologne gives him confidence. There you have it, folks — all of that in one small bottle.
Some nicknames just stick. Crybaby sure has. But another lesser-known nickname of Ronaldo's is Abelhinder or Little bee. This goes back to his childhood — back when he’d buzz around the pitches of Madeira.
He was relatively small but super-fast, just like a little bee. He still buzzes around at lightning speed as a professional footballer, although he’s all grown up now, so “Little” doesn’t stick anymore. We do think that he still stings like a bee on the field.
Haters Gonna Hate
Need it to be said that Ronaldo is an incredibly accomplished athlete? Still, there’ll always be haters. Ronaldo has been accused of being a bit stubborn. He admits to not being the most humble person in the world. He has also said that negative comments only make him want to push to become a better player.
That being said, Ronaldo admits that he wouldn’t be where he is today if it weren’t for those around him.
During the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, in a match against Ivory Coast, Ronaldo was tackled by an opposing player. An argument developed, and both players received yellow cards. Portugal requested the yellow card to be withdrawn the following day.
They claimed that Ronaldo was drawn into the argument. FIFA stuck to their guns on this one, and the yellow card stayed in place. As you can imagine, our star player was not a fan of this decision.
