Cristiano Ronaldo has given one of the most watched and felt career interviews with journalist Piers Morgan.
The interview was released on Tuesday, where he revealed many things, including the best goal, family life, father’s death and rape allegations.
During the interview the 34-year-old was covered in tears when certain topics were touched upon.

The Sun has decided to complete 18 stories about the Portuguese and his career that prove to be unique and multi-class.
