Cristiano Ronaldo donates £5million to Nepal earthquake charity fund


Real Madrid and Portuguese forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly donated £5million to charity to help the people affected by last month’s earthquake in Nepal.

According to French publication So Foot, Ronaldo gave the hefty sum of money to global organisation Save the Children.

Save the Children is one of the main charities involved in helping survivors of last month’s devastating disaster which killed more than 7,000 people.

Last month Ronaldo, 30, used his Facebook and Twitter pages to urge fans to donate to relief efforts.

Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo has a history of being charitable, despite his on-field misdemeanour.

Last year he reportedly stumped up €60,000 to pay for a 10-month-old boy’s brain surgery.

The Portuguese star was in action for Real Madrid in midweek as they lost 2-1 to Juventus in the Champions League semi-final.
