It’s Cristiano Ronaldo’s 30th birthday. For some players that marks the start of the slide to the end of their careers – but somehow he still seems to be getting better.
To celebrate, here’s a look back at some of the most typically Cristiano photos we could find…
One day, my boy, you’re gonna be a star…
“Little boy, big dreams”
Just to prove he did play for Sporting Lisbon once upon a time…
Signing for Manchester United – whatever happened to Kleberson?
He didn’t always look cool…
Two Premier League greats.
You can see why Madrid seemed like an attractive option.
Not many people give a look like that to Sir Alex and get away with it.
Some say his football is divine.
And off to Madrid he goes.
Now we’re not saying this is a dive, but…
Meeting a hero.
Cris v Pep.
In the spotlight.
A familiar and scary sight for goalkeepers.
Cristiano v Zlatan – and Ronaldo drags his team single-handedly to the World Cup.
In his underwear – we had to include one…
Crying as he collects the Ballon d’Or.
He’s behind you.
World Cup disappointment – again…
He scored four against Elche, then did this.
We’re not sure, but we think that’s mutual respect.
The next generation…
