Cristiano Ronaldo loses his running speed

What happened?

Christiano Ronaldo is a Samaritan. In Las Vegas, the rather arrogant footballer has now come out as an honest finder - and as a gentleman.

I beg your pardon?

Indeed: Ronaldo apparently also has a helpful side. Whether the 30-year-old Portuguese acted completely unselfishly is another question. But let's start at the beginning: The student Austin Woolstenhulme spent a party weekend in Las Vegas with a few friends. In photos, the young women in pretty skimpy black dresses smile happily at the camera. The visit hadn't started promisingly: Woolstenhulme had lost her beloved smartphone.

What do we learn from it?

The fact that Ronaldo, who has not necessarily distinguished himself through unselfishness, is an honest finder, is not really surprising in view of his fortune: According to the Forbes list, the Real Madrid striker ranks 10th among the highest-paid celebrities with $ 79.5 million a year . So he certainly doesn't need a used cell phone.

But that he also brings the device back personally? It could well be that the 30-year-old just wanted to do a good deed. That he should have taken the girls to his hotel room later is surely just a rumor.
