Cristiano Ronaldo was named the world’s most charitable athlete just two years ago – and now the Real Madrid superstar has again helped to raise hundreds of thousands at a charity auction.
The former Manchester United star has now auctioned one of his four Ballon d’Ors for a staggering €600,000 at a charity auction.
Ronaldo has always been altruistic and now he has made the kind gesture with all the cash raised from the auction of the replica going to the Make-A-Wish charity.
Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to kids with life-threatening or terminally ill medical conditions.
Ronaldo won his first Ballon d’Or with Manchester United in 2008, and the next three times with Real Madrid in 2013, 2014 and 2016.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Ronaldo donated the 2013 replica at a charity auction in London at the weekend.
It was bought by Israel’s richest person, billionaire Idan Ofer, who spent a massive €600,000 to buy the replica.
