The Real Madrid superstar was back in his native Portugal to receive the prestigious Order of Prince Henry knighthood.
Fresh from being crowned the Ballon d’Or, the Portugal captain was collecting more silverware today with the Ordem do Infante Dom Henrique now in his possession.
It is a five-tier order, whose titles are awarded for relevant services to Portugal and for services in the expansion of the Portuguese culture, its history and its values, and also in attendance today in Lisbon was Real Madrid's President Florentino Perez.
Ronaldo has become the first footballer to receive the award since it was created in 1960.
