Cristiano Ronaldo reveals his greatest fear


What on earth could Cristiano Ronaldo be afraid of?

He’s one of the greatest players of all time, one of the wealthiest athletes on the planet and can’t seem to put a foot wrong in his career.

But there is something that scares the reigning Ballon d’Or holder and it’s all quite profound.

Real Madrid CF v Club Atletico de Madrid - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final: Second Leg

Rather than reveal a fear of insects, heights or even failure, Ronaldo explained in an interview with Libero that his greatest fear is something much more intense.

“My biggest fear is to die young. I want to die old, when I’m 80 or 90 years of age.”

We also hope that the Real Madrid superstar lasts until old age because we’d like to monitor when that Herculean physique deserts him.

He seems to be fit enough to make it to 80, unless Pepe takes his life in a mistimed training ground tackle.
