Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be making the most of his little break from the field before heading to Germany for the Euro 2024 after leading Portugal to a victory over Ireland in an international friendly.

Ronaldo, 39, took to social media to update his fans about his activities. The Al Nassr striker utilised his time off the field to cool off in the Portuguese summer with a dip in the pool.

He shared a photo of himself on his Instagram Story in which he can be  seen showing off his ripped biceps while standing inside a swimming pool.
