MANCHESTER UNITED forward Cristiano Ronaldo has yet again showed off his chiselled physique after sharing a snap of himself in the sauna.
The 36-year-old took to his Instagram story to upload a picture in his underwear to his 367 million followers.
In the photo, a sweaty-looking Ronaldo smiles for the camera in a selfie as he starts his preparations for the weekend trip to Watford.
His former United team-mate Patrice Evra has lifted the lid on Ronaldo’s love for saunas in his bid to keep in peak condition.
Recalling a time he popped round his house, he said: “Cristiano, first of all, as a person and human being, is so generous, so nice and people don’t see that face. But he is a winner. He is addicted.
“For example, when we had training at 10am, Cristiano was already there for 8am. When we had finished training, he was still on the pitch practising.
“When he invited me for lunch… don’t ever go for lunch, because you are going to have one of the most boring lunches at Cristiano’s. It is salad, plain chicken and water. There isn’t even fizzy water.
“After that, we went into the garden, trained for a little bit, went swimming, went to the sauna and at one point I looked at him and said: ‘Bro, we have just finished a training session, why do we have to a second training session?'”

Ronaldo was reduced to tears earlier in the week after Serbia beat Portugal 2-1 in Lisbon to dump the Euro 2016 winners into a World Cup play-off.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who will be 37 by the time the tournament starts next year, previously said he expects Qatar to be his final appearance at the competition – even though he wants to continue playing into his 40s.
He remarked in 2016: “I expect Qatar could be my final World Cup.
“I often go on holidays there, to Qatar as well as Dubai. I am happy because for sure it will be [my] last international tournament.”
Following the heartbreaking defeat, Ronaldo posted a stirring love note to Portugal on social media.
Alongside a photo of himself with pregnant partner Georgina Rodriguez, he said: “No matter how far the world we travel, it is always in Portugal that my family and I feel at home.
“The fantastic climate, the wonderful food, the affection of the Portuguese people, it’s always a pleasure to come back to my country.
“It’s time to go back to Manchester and focus completely on our goals, but we’ll be back soon. See you now, Portugal!”
