Cristiano Ronaldo Signs off from 2013 with Video and Awkward Massage Photo

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterDecember 28, 2016

Cristiano Ronaldo has signed off from 2013 and begun preparations for 2014. How do you go about that?

If you're the Portuguese star, it's a two-point process:

First, send out a video charting your best moments of the year. When you're a leading candidate to win the Ballon d'Or award, that certainly gives you plenty of highlights to choose from. And it's a slickly produced video with a personal message from Cristiano to his legions of fans at the end. You can watch it above.

So far, so good.

Second, take a picture of yourself having a massage, surrounded by a bunch of Real Madrid physios giving the thumbs up:

Getting ready for next year with the last massage.

Why? Because he's Cristiano Ronaldo, that's why.
