Football legend Cristiano Ronaldo once again proved that he is down to earth and wants to give back to those who helped him.
Ronaldo revealed how growing up as a hungry child on the Portuguese island of Madeira he used to beg for hamburgers. A woman named Edna and two other kind-hearted ladies from McDonald’s would help feed him, and the footballer was so touched by this that he still hasn’t forgotten about them. Now he’s vowed to find the three women and thank them properly for all that they’ve done.
During his interview with English journalist Piers Morgan, 34-year-old athlete Ronaldo revealed details about his childhood that hadn’t been heard before.
“We were a little hungry. We have a McDonald’s next to the stadium, we knocked on the door and asked if they had any burgers. There was always Edna and two other girls. I never found them again,” Ronaldo said during his interview with Morgan on ITV.
“I asked people in Portugal, they closed the McDonalds, but if this interview can help find them, I would be so happy,” the football star said. “I want to invite them to Turin or Lisbon to come have dinner with me because I want to give something back.” Morgan later on tweeted that they “may have found Edna.”
