Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly donates £5million to Nepal earthquake relief

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly donated 5 million pounds to the Nepal earthquake relief, as was first reported by the Daily Mail.

Reports are now circulating among European media groups that the Real Madrid has donated the sizable sum to charity group Save The Children.

Ronaldo has been vocal in encouraging people to donate to the disaster-struck zone, using his Twitter and Facebook pages to show fans how they can provide aid to the Nepal cause.

With the death toll now standing at approximately 7,000 in the wake of the earthquake that hit Nepal two weeks ago, the country is in desperate need of financial aid, and this amazing gesture from Ronaldo will undoubtedly go a long way.

Indeed, the 5 million pound figure being mooted is significantly higher than the sum provided by many countries.

This philanthropic side of the 2015 Ballon D’Or winner is often forgotten and overlooked amid all the talk of his egotistical behaviour, but this gesture shows what a big heart he has.
