From power naps to caffeine naps, we’ve all heard how naps are good for recharging our batteries. It has been reported that Ronaldo enjoys having up to five naps per day. On top of this, he also makes sure to get his nine hours of sleep every night. It is a wonder he has time for anything else in his life! When he isn’t napping, he’s training exceptionally hard.
Gym, swimming, pilates and, of course, football training. Who wouldn’t need a nap after all that?
First Portuguese Red Devil
Yep, that’s right. When Ronaldo signed with Manchester United in 2003, he became the first Portuguese player to join the Red Devils. This was when he received the number 7 jersey, which had previously been worn by Eric Cantona, George Best, and David Beckham.
Ronaldo was only a teenager when he joined Man United, who forked out £12 million for Ronaldo. Later Luis Nani, Bebe Tiago, Joel Pereira would follow suit.
What’s a billionaire without a yacht? We saw this coming — the football star celebrated his second Serie A title by splurging on a superyacht! The price tag? $7 million! Ronaldo selected a 27-meter boat.
It features five cabins, six bathrooms, a large kitchen, and two living areas. Images of his family enjoying the luxury yacht while off the coast of Celle Ligure were seen all over Instagram. What a life!
When Ronaldo isn’t training, napping, eating, and playing football, he’s playing bingo. He’s been quoted saying, “Playing bingo can be very exciting.”
Waiting for ages to hear your number might seem tedious to most people, but this superstar gets a kick out of it. Ronaldo is not alone. Sharon Osbourne, Mick Jagger, and Russell Crow are just a few celebs that enjoy this game of numbers and intrigue.
In February 2021, Ronaldo turned 36. With the average retirement age for footballers being 35, you’d think that he'd be considering hanging up his boots sometime soon. But no — he doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
In fact, Ronaldo has claimed that he can continue playing football until he’s 41 and that his biological age is 23! If this is true, he’s at the peak of his abilities, so why stop now?
