Ronaldo tries out being music reporter for a day

Maybe, just maybe, Ronaldo has found a new career now that he has finally retired from football. Il Fenomeno, as he was dubbed by the Italian press when banging in the goals for Inter Milan, tried his hand at being a music journalist for a day in his native Brazil.

The former Real Madrid striker, one of the greatest players the world has ever seen, interviewed local rappers Tulio Dek, Ice Blue and Heliao during the program Reporter for um dia (‘Reporter for a day’).

The two-time World Cup winner blended in pretty well with the musicians although his attempt at rapping left a lot to be desired. Still, he managed to hang around in cool cars and with gorgeous women, and appeared in a video at the end of his shift. Looks like the great man is still living life in the fast lane.


The “other, fat Ronaldo” is now just “chunky Ronaldo”


Remember Ronaldo’s well-documented diet plan? Well, it looks like Il Fenomeno has lived up to his promise of shedding the weight, losing 17 kg (just shy of 40 pounds) in three months by taking part in Brazilian TV network Globo’s “Medida Certa (“The right measure”) show. And though he’s still a hefty 222 lbs, he looks A LOT better than he has for quite a while!

Not gonna lie, we’re gonna miss “fat Ronaldo” for our own entertainment reasons, but it’s good to see him healthy.
