- The Ferrari Formula 1 team received a noteworthy visit on Monday, May 10 from Cristiano Ronaldo
- The Portuguese superstar handed drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz his signed #7 shirt
- His visit was part of an institutional event in which Andrea Agnelli, the president of Juventus also attended
Cristiano Ronaldo missed a Juventus training session so he could attend Ferrari's Formula One headquarters at Maranello, Italy.
The Portuguese star was conspicuously absent from his team’s training session on Monday, May 10 to visit Ferrari with Juventus president Andrea Agnelli and John Elkann, Exor president and Ferrari chairman.
It is kind to note that Exor is the company that controls Juventus and Ferrari, and is run by the Agnelli family.
A photo that has since been shared online shows Ronaldo posing for a photo with drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.
Both drivers had the privilege of being handed a signed Cristiano Ronaldo shirt bearing the iconic number 7.
Several reports in Italy indicate that Ronaldo was given a new Ferrari road car after the visit.
Some cheeky fans took to social media attempting to decipher what Ronaldo’s visit to the Ferrari HQ meant and it was quite funny to see.
Ronaldo in Europa?
Away from race cars and Cristiano Ronaldo is facing a genuine possibility of playing in the Europa League next season.
Ronaldo’s Juventus are currently fifth in the Serie A, one point behind Champions League places with only three games left to play in the campaign.
The 36-year old’s future is uncertain, but there are reports that he is committed to seeing out his Juventus contract, which expires in 2022.
This would see him play in the Europa League if his team finishes below the Champions League places.
Ronaldo is currently Serie A’s top scorer with 27 goals.
Juve facing sanctions for European Super League
That is not the only challenge facing Bianconeri, who are now facing severe action for showing a willingness to still participate in the European Super League.
Italian football federation (FIGC) president Gabriele Gravina has threatened the Turin-based club that they will be thrown out of the league if they don't follow the footsteps of the Milan clubs in abandoning plans for the Super League.
"The rules are clear. If Juventus is still part of the Super League when it enters next season, it can't participate in Serie A," he told Naples radio station Kiss Kiss and reported by Sky Sports.
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Cristiano Ronaldo is such a phenomenon as anything he touches becomes a style as the Juventus star was spotted wearing a dazzling yellow diamond engagement ring normally worn by women.
The 36-year-old was a panellist at the Dubai International Sports Conference and he was seen wearing accessories valued at around R12 million at the event.
