The ad hit football fans like a bomb. On Friday, December 4, the Footballogue Twitter account released disturbing news about Cristiano Ronaldo. The football player is said to be in serious condition after a traffic accident. “Cristiano Ronaldo suffered a serious car accident. He would be between life and death in a hospital in Turin,” we could read on social networks in the middle of the night.
At 8 a.m., Footballogue’s CM, followed by around a million internet users, posted another tweet explaining that it was in fact fake news. “We were the victim of a hack last night. We apologize for the fakenews that was relayed on our account. We have taken steps to shed light on this story”, writes the site, which has since taken over a normal activity.

But the damage is done: Cristiano Ronaldo quickly ranks at the top of Twitter’s Trending Topics around the world. But let the fans rest assured: according to the latest news, the Juventus player from Turin is doing wonderfully!
A fulfilled dad
On December 2, Georgina Rodriguez’s companion celebrated her 750th goal on Twitter. A victory in football for the 35-year-old star, who is also fulfilled in his life. With his partner, in 2017 he had a little girl named Alana. And it is with a lot of love that she takes care of the eldest son of the star, Cristiano Junior and his two twins, Mateo and Eva. And it is not over: soon, the couple will marry.
