The Saudi Arabian kingdom has become a second home for both athletes in recent years, proving to be huge draws as they continue to grow their influence in the sporting world.

The former Real Madrid star is due to close out the Saudi Premier League season by the end of May with two games left to play against Al Riyadh and Al Ittihad.

Meanwhile, the Al Hilal forward has been sidelined since September 2023 after suffering from a knee injury in Brazil.

Additionally,Joshua, 34, who sat next to Ronaldo for the entire night, has returned to his best form in the boxing ring and is expected to face in September the winner of Daniel Dubois' fight against Filip Hrgovic on June 1.
