Cristiano Ronaldo has posted a loving first picture of his family back inside their Turin home as he quarantines before Juventus resume training.
Captioning his snap “The Greatest Love,” he grinned as he played with his four children on a sprawling sofa – in the week partner Georgina Rodriguez hinted another baby could be on the way.
Having returned from two months locked down in Madeira, the Portugal superstar is itching for a return to full practice outside as Serie A edges just weeks away from a probable restart
And although he looks laid back in his latest picture, the ever-focused former Manchester United hero has stayed in awesome physical condition during the coronavirus pandemic via regular gym-work, plus sprinting sessions with Georgina.
Ronaldo’s oldest child, nine-year-old Cristiano Jr, was draped across him in the living room like a diving footballer.
And his three other kids messed about beside them – twins Eva and Mateo, who will be three next month, plus his daughter with Georgina, Alana Martina, also aged two.
Behind the happy scene, though, is a portrait of Ronaldo’s father Jose, who died 15 years ago with an alcoholism-related liver condition, aged just 52.
Ex-Real Madrid attacker Ron courted controversy in Portugal when he moved into a plush rented home in a fishing village after reportedly growing frustrated of life in a townhouse.
But now the 35-year-old is back at his Turin mansion – two villas tucked away together on a hill in a private road guarded by security.
Of course, there’s a swimming pool and every possible aid to fitness that Ronaldo could want… everything, that is, apart from the real thing.
And he craves that return to the pitch even more than he wanted his home comforts.
