- Cristiano Ronaldo remains one of the greatest footballers who has made so much money from the game
- He has been described as a very humble man by a chef in Turin, Italy
- Ronaldo and family reportedly waited over 40 minutes to get a table at a local restaurant
Cristiano Ronaldo was said to have waited for about 40 minutes alongside his girlfriend Georgina and son Cristiano Jr. at a local restaurant in Turin, Italy as they set out for dinner.
It was gathered that the 35-year-old was out with for dinner alongside his girlfriend and son in December 2018, but they reached the outlet 90 minutes early.
Chef Davide Fiore claimed upon the arrival of the Ronaldos, customers who were present at the restaurant did not leave as his presence in the facility stunned them.
He explained that he had to plead with the multiple Ballon d Or winner and his relatives to sit at the emergency table, which they did for about 40 minutes.
Fiore told Tuttosport, as cited in SunSport:
"A person calls me to book a table of three for Cristiano Ronaldo, for 9.30pm.
"Cristiano, Georgina and their eldest son, Cristiano Jr, arrived at 8pm. And there I said to myself, 'What now?'
"So I made Cristiano sit in the emergency table, but time passed and nobody got up. Cristiano did not bat an eyelid and Georgina and her son like him.
"At that juncture I realised that Ronaldo, despite being a world star and the best player in the world, is first and foremost a decent boy.
"I can assure you that I have seen people far less famous than him leave after five minutes, and with arrogance, in such situations.
"He, on the other hand, waited for his table for almost forty minutes."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has continued to dominate other footballers with his earnings in endorsements and annual income.
