Tennis Player Grabs Chair to Hug 6’11” Opponent After Match [video]
"Everyone sees the underwear commercials, the girlfriends and the cars but, trust me, his work ethic is incredible. On the ball, in the gym, eating the right food. Every day after training it was always the same. [MUFC training ground] Carrington is so big, there are acres and acres, so the perimeter is massive. But he would just go out after training and dribble the ball in the rain – doing his step-overs, the ‘Cruyff’ turns, all the things you see on television. He hadn’t honed his free-kick (style) back then, that came later. But he’d run with the ball at his feet around the whole perimeter, working on his own….It is no surprise that this is how he has ended up. Not everyone does that. He is incredible."
Rihanna tweets yet another footballer, Karim Benzema
I have never been a fan of Cristiano, but today I have found admiration and respect for him. Playing a World Cup when you are not 100% and giving the best you can for your team is not easy. I have been in his shoes, I’ve played through the pain and injuries and tried to give the best to my team because I love my team. Cristiano is putting his health on the line for the national team, his country and his fans and all he is getting back for it is criticism. So think about all the physical, emotional and mental pain he is going through before, though and after each game before you criticize him. Would you play through it all? Cristiano Ronaldo you are a very strong man with love, passion and dedication, simply one of a kind.
