Cristiano Ronaldo completes challenge in underpants, nominates stars

Early Doors

Cristiano Ronaldo's ice bucket challenge...

Stars are supposed to be appalled by the idea of having to participate in the awful 'ice bucket challenge', but to Cristiano Ronaldo it seemed to be very enjoyable.

The Real Madrid superstar appeared to be delighted by being challenged to have ice water dumped on him, and there are three reasons why this is so:

1) Ronaldo very much enjoys flaunting his wonderful body

2) It was an opportunity for him to promote his line of self-branded underwear

3) It was for charity

So, all very valid reasons.

The wildly popular stunt - intended to raise money and awareness for ALS - saw CR7 wear nothing but his CR7 pants to add his name to an increasingly long list of stars.

Who could forget the day that Andy Murray's illustrious career came to this?

Ronaldo was nominated by former Manchester United team-mate Darren Fletcher, and he was no doubt delighted and flattered to have been asked.

It appeared that Ronaldo completed the challenge at Real Madrid's training ground as he had two buckets of icy cold water dumped on him.

If you thought you recognised one of the 'dumpers', it was Portugal and Real team-mate Fabio Coentrao.

But then came the truly fascinating bit: Ronaldo challenged Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez AND Lil Wayne to emulate him - with or without wearing CR7 underwear.

Poor Ronaldo must have been shivering afterwards. Well, not cold enough to put any further clothes on, clearly, as he still had his CR7 briefs on when helping Madrid team-mate Marcelo with his challenge.

What is there left to say about this? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
