This is Cristiano Ronaldo, the powerful 33-year-old forward who plays for one of the best teams in the world — Real Madrid. This season alone he has scored 40 goals from 38 appearances in La Liga and Champions League competitions and is set to contest another Champions League final on May 26.
Being Portuguese, and specifically hailing from Madeira, Ronaldo has a taste for fruits and juices, according to Portugal national team chef Luis Lavrador. The chef says Ronaldo's preferences include "pear, apple, or pineapple juice" but he is also "very fond of coffee."
Chef Lavrador also highlighted Ronaldo's love of fish. "Ronaldo eats all sort of dishes, as a responsible athlete he is, but the one he likes the most is fish like gilt-head bream, swordfish and sea bass."
As Ronaldo trains a lot, he drinks plenty of fluids. He said: "I stay hydrated with a sports drink that gives me energy for training and matches. It has a mix of carbohydrates that boosts endurance and is lower than many other sports drinks in sugar. It also contains electrolytes to help with hydration and vitamin B12 that fights fatigue."
Regardless of how otherworldly his soccer skills are, Ronaldo is still human and does not live exclusively on healthy foods. Here he is tucking into a piece of chocolate.
His absolute favourite dish is "Bacalhau à Brás," and is something he might have at dinner. Bacalhau is made from shreds of salted cod, onions, and matchstick-sized fried potatoes. It is served on a heap of scrambled eggs and garnished with things like olives and parsley.
As Ronaldo spends most of his time in Spain, it might be safe to assume there's Rioja in those glasses. However, he has said previously that he avoids alcohol — so maybe it's grape juice. He does like juice, after all. Cheers!
