Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo may find himself the victim of plenty of jokes this weekend after a self-styled model has claimed the Portugal captain uses padding to make his 'package' look bigger than it is.
Following the successful 2015/2016 season where Los Blancos won the Champions League for an eleventh time, Ronaldo was reported to have arranged a lavish boat party whilst holidaying in Ibiza.

It was rumoured at the time that Ronaldo was seeing a brunette who was present at the party, however, another female also on the boat, Elisa de Panicis, has claimed that she was actually the one seeing the Portuguese international.
And when discussing her 'relationship' with the 2016 Ballon d'Or winner, the self-styled model has revealed that Ronaldo uses foreign items to make his 'package' look bigger than it is in real life.
Speaking on reality TV show 'Double Temptation', as quoted by the Mail, Ms de Panicis said: "I have a story about Cristiano Ronaldo. I was on a boat with some friends, and obviously I had his number because we had friends in common, so I texted him saying, 'Hey, how are you?
"One day when we were staying with each other, just as I had finished doing things with my father, I was in my pyjamas, I told him that I would come downstairs (to see him).
"We spoke a little, it was March, and then we had a good time. We had fun, but I think it was nothing special.
"It's a good friendship, I believe in him and support him in whatever decision he makes with his career or family. He is surrounded by good people, has a gorgeous son, and he knows how to enjoy life."
Whether it's bitterness that the friendship never became more, or indeed that it is in fact true, the rumours will certainly annoy CR7, who will doubtlessly have to celebrate by taking his top off the next time he scores to prove to us all that everything we see is real.
Let's just hope he leaves it there with the clothing removal though...
