Hero of the Week: Cristiano Ronaldo, Hat-Trick Scoring, Ballon D'Or Bagger

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalNovember 21, 2013

Pretty easy choice this week, I think you'll all agree.

Cristiano Ronaldo. Wow. Boom. Have-some-of-Zlat. The man scored a hat-trick when his country needed him most and with a nation's hopes squared on his broad, handsome shoulders.

Yes, he's arrogant. But wouldn't you be?

Ronaldo reached new heights against Sweden. It was a performance that spoke volumes of the intense focus and commitment to his craft that has taken him to the top.

Hero.
