Seldom do we come across athletes who go on playing for almost two decades. Cristiano Ronaldo has had at the highest level and for this reason, he can genuinely lay claim to being the greatest athlete in the history of professional sports. Ronaldo is a self-made man, who was not born with the talent he possesses. What nobody can deny is that Ronaldo’s drive and self-belief are miles ahead of anyone else possibly in the history of football, as the Portuguese had set a goal for himself to be the best in the world right from a tender age, working his socks off to see his dreams become a reality.
If we look at Ronaldo’s statistics for all the clubs he has represented and the Portuguese National team, they speak volumes of his contribution. A few of Ronaldo’s goals are breathtaking and we wonder if we can find somebody who can repeat history. He is a world favourite because he doesn’t play just for the hefty payment, but soccer is his life. After earning all he has got today, he is still grounded and shares a chunk of his earnings with the underprivileged. He is quite respectful towards his fans and continues to amaze us day in and day out with his skills even after so many years.
We wonder if he has anything that we wouldn’t admire!
