Cristiano Ronaldo Pays For A 10-Month-Old Boy's $83,000 Brain Surgery
His family and friends have been raising money to pay for a surgery that costs $83,000. When they asked Cristiano Ronaldo to donate a pair of cleats and a jersey to auction off, the Real Madrid star decided to go ahead and cover the entire surgery, AS reports.
Ronaldo makes about $461,000 a week after taxes, so the expense isn't all that much for him. But it's still a remarkable gesture from a guy who has a reputation for being a big of a prima donna.
