The internet was all abuzz overnight after (the real) Ronaldo posted a shirtless picture onto Instagram.
Ronaldo has shed an incredible 17 kg after taking part in a Brazilian TV weight loss show, Globo’s Medida Certa (“The right measure”).
Ronaldo weighed 118 kg at the start of the programme in September, but he is now reported to be carrying a rather trim 101kg.
Aside from taking part in the demanding TV show, some people have credited Ronaldo’s new girlfriend, DJ Paula Morais, with helping the Brazilian to keep off the extra pound as the twosome become one of the hottest couples in South America.
Below the fold are picture of Ronaldo and his new girlfriend taken during this week’s carnival in Brazil.
