5 questions we want answered in Cristiano Ronaldo's biography
Though we've already had numerous books written on Cristiano Ronaldo - the most notable by Guillem Balague - they all share one thing in common; none are official.
The reason? Those advisors closest to the player wouldn't allow any author carte blanche access, wanting to approve copy and, if necessary, sanitise the final publication so that it read exactly how Ronaldo and his representatives preferred, rather than perhaps being a completely honest and true recollection of his life.
What that means is, thus far, no one has really heard the Portuguese's real life story 'from the horse's mouth,' and without any filter added.
Assuming that there’ll be one written, perhaps sooner rather than later, there are five questions that need answering:
#1 Who’s your plastic surgeon?
Ronaldo has had a lot of plastic surgery work done, some of which he will admit to – how could he not – and some of which he still refuses to accept.
But let’s look at the two pictures above. Take away the obvious work done on his smile and we can see that the player now has fewer lines as a 32-year-old than he did as a teen when at Manchester United. That takes some doing.
The skill of the surgeon is Ronaldo-esque in its high-quality application and there’s a steady stream of work available for whoever carried out the procedures. Though much of what we see is ‘man made’ and ‘fake’ so to speak, the work has been done so expertly that it looks completely natural.
It is no wonder offers of modelling work are still flooding in – Ronaldo could melt a thousand hearts with that smile.
