Cristiano Ronaldo SELLS his Ballon d’Or trophy… making £530,000 for charity Make-A-Wish Foundation


CRISTIANO RONALDO has always been altruistic.
The Real Madrid superstar was named the world's most charitable athlete a couple of years ago - and he again helped raise hundreds of thousands at a recent charity auction.
The four-time Ballon d'Or winner has given up a replica of one of his trophies to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Ronaldo donated the 2013 replica at a charity auction in London at the weekend.

It was bought by Israel's richest person, billionaire Idan Ofer, who spent a massive £530,000 to buy the replica.
Those funds will all go to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The charity grants wishes to kids with life-threatening or terminally ill medical conditions.
Ronaldo has a long history of raising huge amounts for charity.

He also regularly gives blood.
Ronaldo earns an estimated £450,000-a-week before tax with Real Madrid.
He also has numerous endorsement deals, including massive deals with sportswear giant Nike - a lifetime deal worth £1BILLION - watchmaker Tag Heuer and fashion brand Armani.
His total net worth is estimated at between £210m and £230m.
