Real Madrid striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been listed the 11th most fashionable sportsperson in the world by American publication, Sports Illustrated.
The 32-year-old Portugal international is described as “sleek, slim and sharp”, with panellist and CEO of Thomas Faison Agency Rachel Johnson saying “Ronaldo’s style has versatility for miles, but he’s at his best in a leather jacket, t-shirt and denim.”
Ronaldo, a four-time Ballon d’Or winner, is renowned for his exquisite fashion taste and recently launched a new CR7 denim range for ultra-active lifestyles.
But like everything in the sporting world that the former Manchester United man turns his attention to, he will be disappointed not to rank first.
Ranked number one in the world is NBA star, Russell Westbrook, of Oklahoma City Thunder followed by popular American baseball player, Victor Cruz.
Tennis goddess, Serena Williams, is third with Roger Federer and LeBron James completing the top five.
There are also nods to another tennis player in Maria Sharapova, who ranks 10th, and Formula One’s Lewis Hamilton who polls eighth.
The top 20 largely consists of stars of American sport such as NBA, Major League Baseball and NHL.
