The twins are reported to have been named Eva and Mateo and been born on June 8 to a surrogate mother.

Ronaldo is now looking forward to focusing his attention on life away from the field after a hectic 2016-17 campaign.

He announced the arrival of the twins in Facebook, saying: "I was in the service of the national team, as always, body and soul, even though my two children were born," Ronaldo wrote on Facebook.

Perez: I know Ronaldo is angry

"Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve the main sporting objective that we wanted, but I am sure we will continue to give joy to the Portuguese people.

"I'm very happy to finally be with my children for the first time."

A lengthy season for Ronaldo saw him taste La Liga and Champions League glory before linking up with his country.
