Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo has done it again, once more showing why he's one of, if not the most charitable sportsman alive.
The 35-year old who currently ply his trade in Italy has given back to Cuban health workers who risked their lives by working during the coronavirus pandemic in Turin.
Remember Italy was the worst-hit country across Europe during the pandemic which prompted all sports-related activities to be suspended in the country for about 3 months.
However, Caribbean nation Cuba who has made rave reviews for their incredible efforts in assisting other countries reached out to Italy which proved decisive in curbing the spread of the virus in the country.
And now, Ronaldo in a goodwill gesture donated autographed Juventus jerseys bearing his name to Cuban doctors and nurses for their valiant contributions during the novel covid-19 crisis that rocked the whole world.
It was reported that Cristiano who is firing on all fronts in a bid to help his club win a 9th successive Scudetto title was intent on delivering the signed jerseys to the health workers himself, but because of the social distancing rules still in place, he couldn't.
Well, this isn't the first time Ronaldo has shown to be altruistic to the core, with the former Real Madrid man having collaborated with agent Jorge Mendes to donate £1m to health institutions in his native Portugal to help in the fight against coronavirus.
He even implored his national teammates to give out 50 percent of the bonus they received after qualifying for the now-postponed European Championship.
Manchester City player Bernardo Silva lifted the lid on the reason behind their donation while speaking to Bleacher Report:
"He's more calm. Actually he was the one, two or three days ago, that gave us the idea to donate our bonus", Silva said.
"So we qualified to the 2020 Euros, which now is in 2021. And he gave us the idea let's donate 50 percent of our bonus".
It really doesn't stop there, but all these humanitarian acts from Cristiano Ronaldo all points to the fact he's up there as the most charitable sportsman ever lived.
