It might seem like Cristiano Ronaldo has everything, but his life hasn't always been so easy.
Ronaldo still has to work hard to be a professional athlete, but once he retires, he plans to finally "live like a king."
After [football] I want to live like a king. I've become the person I am today because of the time I spent without my family and going through difficult times.
I was a teenager, but I had to do things as a man—to the point that I had to do my own ironing. My mental strength began at that time.
Ronaldo also talked about his frustration at not being able to do everything he wants:
You can say you have the best job, money, cars, houses...but that is not everything. One example: On Saturday there's boxing on in Las Vegas and I would like to take my family and friends, but I can't because I have no time.
