Cristiano Ronaldo was best man at his agent's wedding last weekend - and the present he reportedly bought Jorge Mendes and his new wife Sandra was simply stunning.

Ronaldo has been working with Mendes throughout his career and the pair have made each other many a million in revenue, so what do you buy the man who has everything?

The answer is entire Greek Island!

With the Greek economy crumbling, their government has taken to selling off some of the the countries islands to private investors and while the precise details of the land Ronaldo bought Mendes has yet to be confirmed, reports in Portugal claim he may have spent up to €50m on the purchase.

Mendes' clients and Ronaldo's Real Madrid team-mates Fabio Coentrao and Pepe were on hand to watch what must have been a fascinating best man's speech, with the price tag on this wedding likely to have been astronomical.

Hugely influent agent Mendes is also adviser in chief to Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, his new striker Radamel Falcao and Manchester United keeper David De Gea.
