Latest reports reveal that World Best player, Cristiano Ronaldo, has called it quits.
The Real Madrid striker, who earlier this week won Fifa’s Ballon d’Or, called it quits in his relationship, as he has confirmed his split from his Russian model girlfriend Irina Shayk, according to Portuguese press reports.
According to the Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha, sources within Ronaldo’s inner circle claimed he had told his family that his relationship with Irina was over.
The article featured the following headline: “CR7 confirms to his family that he is separated. He has ended his five years relationship with Irina.”
Rumors of their break-up started this week when Irina, who only follows 33 people on Twitter, appeared publicly to unfollow her boyfriend of four years on the social network.
She was not present in Zurich, Switzerland, on Monday, when Ronaldo won the prestigious FIFA Ballon d’Or award for the third time.
