Ronaldo set for movie stardom

A film documenting a year in the life of Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is to be released in autumn 2015.

The Portugal international will be the subject of what the film makers claim to be a "powerful documentary following a year in the life of the world’s best footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo".

The film, when it hits the big screen, should offer a fascinating insight into the life of the former Manchester United star.

It is likely to document the highs and lows of Ronaldo's 2014/15 season which saw him awarded the Fifa Ballon d'Or  for the third time in January and the subsequent slump in form which saw him overshadowed by great rival Lionel Messi.

While Ronaldo struggled, Messi's brilliance enabled Barcelona to claim a domestic and continental treble which at the weekend saw them add the Champions League crown to the Liga and Copa del Rey titles sewn up last month.

It's not yet clear whether the documentary will delve into Ronaldo's private life. In January, he hit the headlines when he split from girlfriend Irina Shayk.
