Cristiano Ronaldo is, without doubt, one of the greatest football players to have ever played “the beautiful game,” and subsequently, one of the most famous men on the planet.

His footballing career began when he was 16-years-old, for Sporting Lisbon in his native Portugal. Following a 3-1 win against Manchester United in August 2003, then-managed Sir Alex Ferguson made it his mission to sign the talented youngster. He did so, and the rest, you could say is history. Ronaldo was given the number 7 shirt, which had previously been worn by the likes of George Best, Eric Cantona and David Beckham, essentially making it Manchester United royalty.

With a glittering 20-year under his belt, Ronaldo has been catapulted to global stardom and become one of the highest-paid, and highest-earning athletes in the world. Here’s everything you need to know about Cristiano Ronaldo, including his net worth, age, wife and more.
