There are strong indications that Portugal and Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo could be gay.
CR7 seem to have confirmed speculation that he is homosexual when he stated right after he netted a hat-trick for Los Blancos in their 3 – 0 away win at Atletico Madrid on Sunday, November 20.
The 31-year-old was said to have had a clash with Atletico’s Koke who referred to him in Spanish as 'gay'. Furious Ronaldo replied saying "Yes, I'm gay, but I'm a very rich gay."
In 2015, Spanish daily Sport claims the former Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon man could be seeing the professional kick-boxer Badr Hari.
The report suggested that Ronaldo flies to Morocco to visit his friend several times in a week and their cuddly positions when they take pictures together has raised suspicions.
Ronaldo is a single father after breaking up with his girlfriend of five years Irina Shayk back in January 2016. Badr Hari meanwhile has a few kids of his own.
Daniel Riolo, a contributor on French television show Touche pas a mon sport, said: "Ronaldo takes three or four jets a week to see a friend in Morocco and cuddle with him."
Back in 2010, Ronaldo praised Portugal’s decision to allow gay marriage.
He said: "As I am Portuguese, I try to keep myself informed about what is happening in my country.
"We must respect the choices of each other, because, after all, all citizens should have the same rights and responsibilities."
