Dude, where’s my car? Ronaldo’s physios face wait for new motors after Ballon d’Or winner promised presents (and it’s looking good – Madrid star usually keeps his word!)
It’s a hard life being Cristiano Ronaldo’s physio – but it can have its rewards.
The recently crowned FIFA Ballon d’Or winner has promised Madrid medics a new car after he won their best player in the world award this week.
In a recent interview with Sportsmail, Real Madrid coach Paul Clement revealed how dedicated Ronaldo would often go for a dawn rub-down when coming back from a midweek Champions League game.

All well and good for Ronaldo but not so clever for the physios who have to get to work when all they really want to do is get home.
But Ronaldo looks after his massage team and has in the past given new watches and the latest iPhones as thank you presents.
The Portuguese superman is so grateful for the way they have helped him avoid injury in recent seasons that he told them he would buy then new cars if he won the Ballon d’Or.
He is known for being a man of his word so the staff are now waiting anxiously for their new motors.
All in! Ronaldo was pictured having a massage with the Madrid medical team last month
Grateful: Ronaldo appreciates the medical work and has given staff brand new iPhones in the past
