Cristiano Ronaldo, the renowned Portuguese footballer, was recently spotted enjoying some quality time with his family at his swimming pool. Amidst the ongoing controversies surrounding his personal and professional life, Ronaldo and his family decided to spend some quality time together. However, fans were quick to notice a hilarious moment between Ronaldo and his son Mateo, which has gone viral on the internet.
Cristiano Ronaldo shared a video in which he was playing with Mateo in the pool. Ronaldo held Mateo in his hands and launched his young son into the air. Mateo flew head-first into the water while the Al-Nassr star burst into a loud laughter. Although Ronaldo’s son didn’t seem to mind his father’s antics, soccer fans had a field day.
They pointed out that Cristiano Ronaldo was teaching his young son how to dive. To put things into context, Ronaldo has been frequently accused of diving and playacting throughout his career. Several soccer stars resort to diving and playacting to attract fouls from their opponents. However, this behavior is often considered unsportsmanlike.
Fans reacted to Ronaldo’s video and started posting comments like, “Teaching his son how to dive already.” Some fans also pointed out that even Ronaldo’s arch-rival, Lionel Messi, has a son named Mateo. The video, which has been reshared several times on social media platforms, has now gained hundreds of thousands of views.
While Cristiano Ronaldo was relishing his happy time with his family, it appears as if he was forced to do so. According to El Futbolero, Georgina Rodriguez is reportedly unimpressed with Ronaldo’s lack of attention towards his family. Georgina believes that the Portuguese skipper is too invested in the ongoing drama at Al-Nassr.
Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t having the best moment of his professional career. The former Manchester United star has found himself embroiled in several controversies. Most recently, a Saudi Arabian lawyer demanded Ronaldo be arrested because of his indecent gesture towards fans after a match. Currently, Ronaldo is contemplating his future at Al-Nassr just months after signing the mega $200 million deal.
Although Cristiano Ronaldo has paid heed to Georgina’s complaints. In addition to Ronaldo spending time with his family at the pool, the former Real Madrid star also shared a romantic picture of himself with Georgina a few days ago. Ronaldo’s picture killed two birds with one stone – not only did he manage to appease Georgina, but he also shut down the rumors of a rift in their relationship.
