Cristiano Ronaldo - First 35 goals in Saudi Arabia:

This is not his real name

At least not his full real name. The world knows him as Cristiano Ronaldo, but his full name is Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro. The "Ronaldo" in his name comes from former US president Ronald Reagan. His mother was a fan of this politician and wanted to give her son (at least part of) his name. Cristiano was born just one month after Ronald Reagan was elected president. Ronaldo's mother, Dolores Aveiro, explains in her book ("Mother Courage") that she made this decision after giving up abortion. Ronaldo did not have a good childhood: his mother was a cook, and his father was an alcoholic gardener. Since her mother thought this relationship had no future, she considered terminating her pregnancy, but gave up at the last minute.

The book also says that Ronaldo had two nicknames as a child: Little Bee and Crybaby. The first has to do with his ability to run very fast. The second is because he starts crying when his friends fail to score a goal after he passes the ball to them. We can easily say that he still deserves the nickname Little Bee. While playing against West Ham in September 2021, Ronaldo reached a speed of 32.51 km/h and became the fastest football player in the world.

He has a university course based on his career

If you go to the University of British Columbia Okanagan and want to study sociology, your fourth-year course will be on Cristiano Ronaldo. Professor Luis Aguiar teaches a four-year course on sociology and devotes the last course entirely to this famous football player. He says he does this because Ronaldo's social and cultural impact goes beyond football and even changes society. According to Aguiar, Ronaldo's connection with his Portuguese identity says important things about the identities of societies and cultures.

Speaking of the academy, did you know that there is also a museum dedicated to Ronaldo? There is a museum called "CR7" in his birthplace, Funchal, Madeira. Here you can find many things about his life, from his old photos to the awards he won. You may also consider accommodation when you visit here, because the upper floor of the museum consists of a 4-star hotel, which also belongs to Ronaldo.

He has some problems with the press

Ronaldo is not the first celebrity to have problems with the press, but being the most famous football player in the world makes all eyes turn to you. In 2008, the Daily Telegraph newspaper accused Ronaldo of acting "irresponsibly". According to the newspaper, Ronaldo had stayed up for hours to dance with women in a nightclub while he had an ankle injury and risked his entire career. The same year, another report was published in The Sun newspaper about Ronaldo violating club rules by using a phone during training. He denied both allegations and filed a lawsuit regarding these accusations. Both the Daily Telegraph and The Sun were forced to pay an undisclosed amount of compensation and issue an apology. Ronaldo donated the compensation he received to a charity.

He is the third athlete with a lifetime endorsement agreement

It's not uncommon for celebrities to sign advertising deals, but they're all limited to a certain period of time. There were two people who signed a lifetime deal without such a limit: LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Cristiano Ronaldo became the third person in 2016, by signing a deal with Nike. It is estimated that Nike paid around $1 billion and has already generated over $450 million in revenue through social media, so although the number is big, it was worth it. Ronaldo has more than 400 million followers on Instagram alone, so it is obvious that he will create a huge potential customer base for any brand in the long run.
