Recently, in a video on X (formerly Twitter), the Al-Nassr forward was found in his room listening to the song “Lay Up” sung by American rapper Future.
An old photo of the former Real Madrid star has also resurfaced on the web. In the photo, Ronaldo is seen listening to music before a match with his phone facing the cameras.
