Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has persuaded club chefs to put his favourite foods on the training ground menu at the canteen.
A huge factor in how the 36-year-old continues to operate at the highest level – and his confidence that he can play into his 40s – is his strict, specific diet which allows him to eat up to six times a day.
