Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the greatest football players of his generation. Ronaldo’s father, José Dinis Aveiro, was the equipment manager for the local club Andorinha. The name Ronaldo was added to Cristiano’s name in honour of his father’s favourite movie actor, Ronald Reagan, who was U.S. president at the time of Cristiano’s birth. A tall player at 6 feet 1 inch, he was a formidable athlete on the pitch. Originally a right-winger, he developed into a forward with a free-reined attacking style. He was able to mesmerize opponents with a sleight of foot that made sufficient space for openings in opposing defenses.
