Cristiano Ronaldo, a recipient of a record five Ballon d'Or awards and four European Golden Shoe awards, has already tasted success which can be matched only by a handful of footballers. He is often considered as the best active football player in the world alongside Lionel Messi. Ronaldo plays as a forward for his Italian-based Serie A club Juventus and he is also the captain of his national team Portugal. He is the second-highest-paid footballer and one of the highest-earning athletes worldwide.
