One of our favourite soccer players of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo, is still winning after parting ways with his former soccer team Manchester United. The Portugal captain became the first player to score in five World Cups with a penalty to help steer his side to a 3-2 win over Ghana in the FIFA World Cup 2022, in Qatar, on Thursday 24 November.
It’s been a good week for the football legend who also revealed his ultra-luxury watch line in collaboration with the American jewellery brand Jacob & Co this week.
The watch range consists of two collections — the Heart of CR7 and Flight of CR7 — which features four watches designed by the soccer player, according to Kickoff.
Both the Flight of CR7 and the Heart of CR7 are available with 26 baguette-cut white diamonds totalling around 4.26 carats, framing the dials.
CR7 is effectively the brand of Cristiano Ronaldo, using his initials and usual playing shirt number, according to Watchpro.

KING OF CONTROVERSY
We’re used to seeing Ronaldo in all the global tabloids and fashion magazines. The soccer player is no stranger to controversy.
Ronaldo recently had an explosive interview with British journalist Piers Morgan, talking about his dissatisfaction with his former team Manchester United. “He knew what he wanted to say, and how he wanted to say it. He knew what the reaction would be,” Morgan told BBC.
Do you think Cristiano Ronaldo is the king of controversy or are people exaggerating ?
