BY SAMSON MBII,21ST JULY 2017-Cristiano Ronaldo stopped off at a hospital in Singapore on Friday to visit with Valencia owner Peter Lim, whose daughter Kim has just given birth.
Ronaldo was greeted by hundreds of fans hunting autographs as he arrived at Thomson Medical Hospital after Kim gave birth to a baby boy.
The Real Madrid superstar is close with Lim and sold six years worth of his image rights to Mint Media, a company owned by the Singaporean businessman, in 2015
Lim also has links with Ronaldo’s former side Manchester United and co-owns Salford City with Red Devils legends Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville brothers.
Ronaldo is thought to be stopping off in Singapore on his way to China, where he is expected to sign a new major endorsement deal with Mint Media and attend events in Beijing and Shanghai.
The 32-year-old previously visited Singapore in 2013 to attend a promotional event for Lim’s charity at a secondary school, where he gave a motivational speech.
Ronaldo is currently enjoying an extended break from football after competing in the Confederations Cup with Portugal where they made it to the semi-finals.
He is due to report back for Madrid training later this month with Zinedine Zidane’s side currently in Los Angeles during their pre-season tour of the United States.
Madrid are set to play United in their first pre-season game on July 23 in Santa Clara, California before further glamour ties against Man City, Barcelona and the Major League Soccer All-Stars.
