Cristiano Ronaldo is the world’s highest-paid soccer player. He looks like THIS, makes $80 million a year and is on Real Madrid who has has almost half a billion fans. He told GQ,
“I see myself as the best footballer in the world. If you don’t believe you are the best, then you will never achieve all that you are capable of. Last season was one of my best. I scored 66 goals in one season, which is unique in our sport. But this year I’m hoping to score more… When you don’t expect is the moment when you score.”
Sounds like bragging but not coming from THE most recognizable athlete in the world, ahead of LeBron James, Tiger Woods and Roger Federer. Photographer Ben Watts shot him with Brazilian supermodel, Alessandra Ambrosio for GQ‘s Body Issue and THIS is the result. You can read more about him here, but that is pretty much it. Except for him juggling a soccer ball in various underwear below. Say no more.
