CRISTIANO RONALDO is holed up in a luxury home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in his native island of Madeira, complete with its own rooftop pool.
His girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez has been offering glimpses of the stunning hideaway where they are sitting out the coronavirus pandemic after the couple jetted to the island in the early hours of Monday morning.
Cristiano’s Juventus teammate Daniele Rugani, who the 35-year-old shared a dressing room with on Sunday when his team beat Inter Milan 2-0 behind closed doors, has tested positive for coronavirus.
The Serie A side has confirmed it is “activating all the isolation procedures required by law, including those who have had contact with him.”
Confirming the former Real Madrid striker is staying put and not returning to Italy for the time being, it added: “Cristiano Ronaldo has not trained and remains in Madeira awaiting developments with the current health crisis.”
Cristiano is said to be staying in the top two floors of a seven-storey house he purchased recently in Funchal.
His mum Dolores Aveiro, currently in hospital after a stroke last week, and his brother Hugo reportedly live on lower floors.
Georgina posted a stunning picture after jetting to Madeira of the rooftop pool, showing Cristiano’s eldest son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr looking out to sea.
And she later posted a new photo showing the couple’s daughter Alana relaxing on a sofa by a window offering stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
She wrote alongside the photo: “After mummy told her off, she punished me with her little face of an angry doll.”
Ronaldo has been seen out and about since arriving in Madeira, but it was before his teammate tested positive for coronavirus.
On Tuesday he went to the Madeira Botanical Garden in the capital Funchal with his family.
He has also visited his mum in hospital, although he is said to have worn protective clothes including gloves and a face mask on Monday when he was allowed into her room to see her at Dr Nelio Mendonca Hospital ahead of her transfer to a private hospital.
His sister Katia, who travelled back from Brazil where she now lives to be by her mum’s side after she suffered a stroke, posted a picture of her with Cristiano and their siblings Elma and Hugo on Wednesday.
She did not identify the place where the picture was taken.
It is not yet clear how long Cristiano will remain in Madeira. Serie A football is suspended until April 3.
