Cristiano Ronaldo has opened up on his personal life in a candid interview with Piers Morgan, which will be broadcast on Tuesday, September 17.
It has been billed by ITV, who will broadcast the chat, as the “King of Football” meeting the “King of Conversation”.
Extracts of the discussion, which took place in Turin, have already hit the headlines due to clips shown on ‘Good Morning Britain’ on Monday, in which the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was revealed to have spoken on a wide variety of subjects that have made him who he is today.
The father-of-four was revealed to have broken down in tears during the chat as he discussed his late father Dinis, who died in 2005 due to liver failure, while he also spoke about the rape allegations made towards him by American model Kathryn Mayorga – accusations that he has always strongly denied and which no charges will be pressed against him for.
He also opened up about his relationship with Georgina Rodriguez, mother of one of his children, and spoke about his love for her.
