How does a world-class player like Cristiano Ronaldo stay at the top of his game while playing 60 games a year?

The answer, according to the man himself, is a regimented post-match warm-down ritual.

While many players will go out celebrating (or commiserating) following a game, still reeling from the adrenaline of performing in a stadium of adoring fans, the Portuguese star prefers to head home to ensure his physical and mental wellbeing are maintained. 

Ronaldo explained the importance of what he does after a game to Spanish sports newspaper AS
