Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s heartfelt message to Mexican earthquake victim

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has today taken to Twitter to post a message to a young fan who lost his life in the devastating earthquake that hit Mexico last week.

Tragedy

As has been heavily reported in the media over recent days, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit the city of Atlixco in the Mexican state of Puebla on Tuesday, with the death toll following the tragedy having already reached 320 people.

Thousands more have been left homeless by the event, with relief efforts being made worldwide to help out the families affected.

Gesture

West Ham United have already joined forces with striker Javier Hernandez and fellow Mexican international Miguel Layun following the launch of the #YoXMexico initiative, while Spanish giants Atletico Madrid announced on Saturday that they will be dominating 50,000 Euro to aid the victims.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has today revealed his personal gesture to one young boy who lost his life after a school was crushed in the earthquake.

The boy in question was young Santiago, who was a huge fan of Ronaldo.

Following his tragic passing, Santiago’s relatives wrote to the Portuguese attacker to let him know just how much of a fan the youngster was.

In response, Ronaldo has since posted a photo of himself on Twitter, holding a Real Madrid jersey with a personal message, reading:

‘To my no.1 one fan, Santiago.’

He captions the post with:

‘In this moment of pain, I send a huge hug to Santiago’s family and to all the families who have lost their loved ones.’
