Star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is a force to be reckoned with on and off the field. He is highly regarded as one of the greatest players to ever grace the soccer world, SportsBible reported.

His transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr has shown that the Portugal player is unstoppable, as he has scored 52 goals in 59 games, one of the highest in the world.

He is famously known to be obsessive about his work, putting in extra hours of training back in his younger days.

Ronaldo’s former teammate Patrice Evra revealed in an interview that he once went to CR7’s house for dinner after finishing his training but was later pushed back into more training.

The Portuguese player is also known to have several superstitious habits, such as painting his nails black when sick.

Another habit of Ronaldo that you may not know is that Al Nassr always enters the pitch with his right foot first.

As per reports, this is due to a longstanding Portuguese tradition, which suggests that one should enter with the right.

Similarly, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner also has some other more noticeable habits, such as always standing in the same position during team photos. Ronaldo always stands on his tiptoes. The 39-year-old's iconic free kick stance is also something unique.
