Christiano Ronaldo has revealed how growing up as a hungry child on the Portuguese island of Madeira he used to beg for hamburgers. A woman named Edna and two other kind-hearted ladies from McDonald’s would help feed him, and the footballer was so touched by this that he still hasn’t forgotten about them. Now he’s vowed to find the three women and thank them properly for all that they’ve done.
Ronaldo is widely regarded as one of the two best players of his generation, alongside Lionel Messi. Winning his first Ballon d’Or in 2008 by a record-high vote count at age 23, over the next decade Ronaldo has often featured in debates concerning who is the greatest player in history.
