Ronaldo or Messi? Forever a debate, forever undecided. But, whether you favour the Argentine over the Portugeuse captain, you can’t deny that Ronaldo is a top bloke for what the Real Madrid man has done on and off the pitch.
And, no, you can not say, ‘oh Ronnie purely does it for marketing purposes’ blah blah, the Portuguese has done too many good deeds to be viewed that way. Have a look at the 12 times when CR7 has been a top ambassador for the game!
El Clasico Record
Eat your heart out, Lionel - CR7 was the first player to score in six consecutive El Clasicos.
Who says the No.7 doesn't turn up in the big games? Simmer down.
Aside from the fact, Messi has that terrible leg tattoo. Ronnie gets one over the Argentine, as he refuses the ink, due to it prohibiting the Real man from donating blood.
Now, this is a cool record to say you've done. Score in every single minute of the 90.
And, the first player to ever do it. Fair play, pal.
Ronaldo is the CL. The Portugeuse captain is the only player to score 15+ goals in two Champions League seasons.

UEFA Team of the Year
The ex-United man, has appeared in the 'UEFA Team of the Year' more than anyone else.
10 bloody times. Christ.
Ronaldo was the fastest player to reach 350 goals for one club back in March.
See ya, Messi. It took Ronnie just 335 games.
Most charitable athlete
Won the charity award, "Athletes Gone Good".
For the legend's countless donations to different charities.
Whilst the Barca man was busy retiring in the summer, Ronaldo was busy managing his national side.
After being injured, rather than sit glum on the bench. CR7 was barking orders, dragging Portugal to a historic Euro victory.
Currently, Ronnie has the most hat-tricks in Spanish football (32).
Erik Ortiz Cruz
One of the many times the Real Madrid man helped individuals.
However, this one really caught the eye after the appeal saw Ronaldo pay for the poor child's whole operation.
UCL Winning money
What did CR7 do with the £456,000 winnings from Real's Champions League victory?
Oh ye, donate it to charity. Ambassador; idol; God.
