Ronaldo de Lima, a retired footballer who played for Brazil national team, Inter Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid, is no longer worried about what the world thinks about his lifestyle, health and fitness.

The super-striker, also known as The Phenomenon has nothing else to prove to anyone on the pitch, having left his mark in the sands of time.
Ronaldo was popular for his amazing skills which include nearly-impossible feints, dribbling at speed and deadly finishing.
The famous Brazilian footballer’s switch to clubs in Spain and Italy crowned him as the only player, second to Diego Maradona, to break world transfer records twice.
However, Ronaldo’s glittering football career was cut short due to recurring injuries.
He was named FIFA World Player of the Year (1996,1997 and 2002).
Some of his many football achievements include two Ballon d’Or trophies (1997 and 2002).
He’s widely considered to be the greatest football player of all time despite the Messi vs Ronaldo or Diego Maradona vs Pele of Brazil controversies.
Ronaldo (full names Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima) is often compared with his Portuguese namesake Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of achievements, but it makes no sense at all because they played in different eras.
Brazilian Ronaldo scored a total of 405 goals in his professional club playing career.
He found the net 62 times for his country, and retired with 467 goals in 678 games.
Statistics show he earned an average of 0.68 goals per game or one goal for every 1.45 games he played.
All said, we’d like you to take a peek into Ronaldo’s private life.
