Despite entering the twilight years of his career Ronaldo has become the fastest man to net 50 Serie A goals.

Behind the scenes it takes a lot of hard work. From his diet, to exercise routine to sleep and rest, the forward leads the most disciplined of lifestyles.

He can eat up to SIX meals a day, with fish a big part of his diet.

Once tucked up, Ronaldo will ensure he has eight hours of sleep each night. That’s in addition to FIVE naps he will take during the day.

The gym and intense exercise are also a huge part of Ronaldo’s life – as shown by his incredible muscle definition and speedy recovery from injury.

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard recently described Ronaldo as the Michael Jordan of football.

He told Sky Sports: “Everything he has achieved in his career. He has been at plenty of clubs and won many trophies.

“I believe he is a real icon of football, the Michael Jordan of football.”
