While many are struggling to get foods and basic needs, Cristiano Ronaldo apparently still enjoys the same luxurious lifestyle he has been acquainted to while in quarantine. The Portuguese soccer superstar and his family are reportedly staying in a private island amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The 35-year-old hunk is said to have recently purchased the island, which is a private stretch of land that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean near Madeira. He and family will reportedly reside there until the coronavirus subsides.
Cristiano’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez recently shared on her Instagram page photo and video from their self-isolation. One picture showed the stunning ocean view through the window of what looked like a living room. Another image offered a glimpse of a rooftop pool overlooking the ocean. It’s hard to tell, though, if it’s located in a private island or not.
According to The Sun, the luxury villa where Cristiano and his family are currently staying at is a seven-storey house. He is said to be staying in the top two floors, while his mother Dolores Aveiro and his brother Hugo reportedly live on lower floors. His mother, however, is currently in hospital after suffering a stroke two weeks ago.
It’s also unconfirmed if Cristiano recently purchased the private island for the purpose of self-isolation, or if he has already owned the island before the coronavirus quarantine.
Cristiano has placed himself in isolation after his Juventus teammate Daniele Rugani announced he tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, March 11. Later on March 17, another of the group’s players, Blaise Matuidi, also tested positive for coronavirus.
While he’s reportedly tested negative for coronavirus, it has been confirmed that the former Real Madrid star will not return to Italy for the time being. The Serie A stated, “Cristiano Ronaldo has not trained and remains in Madeira awaiting developments with the current health crisis.”
