Ronaldo then talks in depth about the dining facilities as he pays special attention to his diet and nutrition, the key to his success.
"The second or third most important place to me is the place where I eat — where I have my lunch and dinners because most of the time I eat at home," he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail website. "My chefs cook unbelievably for me, this is why I look like that," he added.
