After a rather untimely exit from the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Portuguese sensation and two-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo did what almost anybody in his position would do after facing such heartbreak… Booked a first class, top-of-the-line holiday for him and a few friends on the luxurious Greek island of Mykonos!
According to the latest reports, the Real Madrid forward was spotted sunning himself aboard a luxury yacht while visiting the neighboring island of Paros. Contrary to popular belief, his Russian supermodel girlfriend Irina Shayk is NOT with him, as she prepares for the release of her debut film ‘Hercules’ starring opposite Dwayne Johnson.
Mykonos is 30 square miles of white sandy beaches in the Aegean Sea. Famous for its white sugar cube structures, boutique outlets and tranquil harbors, it is the preferred Greek island of choice for many of the World’s elite… According to Greek Reporter, fellow Portuguese national and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho recently enjoyed a Mykonos-getaway with his family ahead of the new Premier League season in August.
Ronaldo is reportedly staying at the villa of Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, one of Greece’s most-powerful business women. She is best known for being the President of the bidding and organizing committee for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, and was listed by Forbes magazine as one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in the World.
It’s a shame the World’s best player couldn’t take his national side all the way to the top… Fortunately, his £300,000-a-week paycheck from Spanish giants Real Madrid should come in handy providing a little ‘comfort’… Not to mention the countless sun loungers that line-up the Aegean Sea helping you recuperate from the night before, and prepare you for the long night ahead!
