Footage Of What It's Like To Be Cristiano Ronaldo In Public Has Emerged - It Looks Horrific
Footage has emerged offering a peak into what it's like being Cristiano Ronaldo and it looks incredibly exhausting.
The YouTube video from MONSTER via Marin Gacina documents the 35-year-old routine when visiting a coffee shop with a friend.
It begins with the Juventus star sitting down and ordering two teas for him and a friend before the public realise who it is.
The video was uploaded back in 2016 so it is safe to assume it was filmed in Spain during 'CR7's' time at Real Madrid.
He arrives at Zoco Pozuelo shopping center and enters the coffee shop to dozens of eyes staring at him.
It doesn't take long for the first woman to approach the Portugal captain for a photo and he happily obliges.
A tally appears on the screen to count how many drinks he has compared to the number of selfies he takes.
Another woman approaches Ronaldo and asks if this will be the last selfie he takes to which he replies:
"It won't be the last one, I know."
By the end of the visit, Ronaldo has purchased four cups of coffee/tea and taken an astonishing 30 selfies with fans.
Comments on the video are shocked by what the former Manchester United fan goes through on his day-to-day life.
One user commented: "He looks more tired than playing in a 90 minute game."
While another states: "This is why I never want to be famous."
A third simply puts: "Poor Cristiano... But he is a star he must accept that."
As he leaves the complex he explains:
"It's a signal that people admire my job and like the way that I am, I feel good."
However, the e forward discussed fame last year during his interview with Piers Morgan and explained the price of it all.
He explained per IOL.co:
"Being me is boring. A part of it is fantastic. Being famous, first page of the newspaper and TV. But after 15 years, after all this time, I want some privacy.
"In the last 10 years, my privacy has gone. I haven't been to the park with my kids. If I go, people turn up and my kids are nervous, my girlfriend is nervous, I'm nervous.
"When you are in public, you cannot be yourself. It's boring. I want to be free again."
