Often dubbed cruelly as the “fat Ronaldo”, Brazilian international Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima has lost over two and a half stone as part of a reality TV show. The three time winner of the FIFA Player of the year award did remarkably well to shed the pounds.
A rigorous exercise routine including weight lifting, yoga and of course football saw Ronaldo succeed in the program broadcast on Brazilian TV called Fantastico.
Ronaldo currently works with the Brazilian Football Association and takes part regularly in charity games. His new trim figure is bound to come in useful as he comes up regularly against former greats who have stayed fit since retirement.
