Cristiano Ronaldo has donated five ventilators to Portuguese hospitals and taken a pay cut as some of football’s biggest names continue to rally round in the fight against coronavirus.
The Juventus superstar had earlier teamed up with agent Jorge Mendes to pay for medical supplies after returning from worst-hit country Italy to his homeland to care for his sick mum and then self-isolate.
Now health chiefs in his home town Madeira say the former Manchester United and Real Madrid attacker has stepped in to help again.
There is no doubting the 35-year-old is a force for good when it comes to his generosity and thoughfulness for many causes.
Apart from helping individuals in need, he has sold off some of his major gongs for charity and in April 2015 gave £5million to relief efforts after the Nepal earthquake.
