Cristiano Ronaldo has been training hard - and we've got the pictures to prove it.
For the first time in 8 months, Cristiano Ronaldo hit the front page of the newspapers. Whilst he's more than happy to be seen on the back, sports, pages of newspapers, the fact that he's once again the talk of the nation will hurt him.
This comes just days after Cristiano complained in the press about the fact that he was front-page news at the time of his father's death and rape allegations.
