Many Happy Returns Cristiano Ronaldo!

We’re sending our birthday wishes to Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, who of course we know best as simply Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano is a Portuguese footballer who has become famous all over the world, playing for his country, Real Madrid and of course he played for Manchester United too. He’s achieved a lot in his career so far. He’s the only European player to ever win five Ballon d’Or awards and he’s the only player ever to win four European Golden Shoes.

In 2016 and 2017 he was the highest paid athlete in the world. That’s not bad for a boy who had surgery for a heart condition when he was in his teens! He’s spent his whole life playing football, first being signed at age 12, then convincing his mother to let him leave school at 14 to concentrate on his football career. I imagine that was a difficult decision to make, but it certainly turned out to be the right one!
