Ronaldo is one of the biggest football superstars in the world and is rarely out of the headlines.

He caused a stir over the summer when he left Real Madrid after nine years and joined Italian champions Juventus in a €100 million deal.

The forward has already proven to be a hit in Italy, with seven goals and four assists in his first 10 Serie A outings.

He's had another successful year in 2018, helping Real Madrid to a third consecutive UEFA Champions League title in May, and he's also backing himself to pick up another Ballon d'Or:
