Cristiano Ronaldo Help Battle Coronavirus, Converts His Four-Star Hotels

Cristiano Ronaldo Converts Four-Star Hotels

Cristiano Ronaldo will convert all of his hotels in Portugal into temporary hospitals to help take on the coronavirus.

The generous Ronaldo will also personally foot the bills and wages of doctors and nurses working within them so as not to burden the country's health service.

Ronaldo owns a £165-a-night, a four-star hotel in Funchal on his home island of Madeira and a £195-a-night hotel in the Portuguese capital Lisbon as part of his CR7 brand.

According to Marca, these will be adapted to aid the global fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. The facilities will be free of charge to anyone suffering from the coronavirus.

Ronaldo went into quarantine last week after Juventus team-mate Daniele Rugani tested positive for the virus that has killed nearly 1,500 people in Italy.

The Juventus star is completing his isolation in Madeira so he can be close to his mother, Dolores Aveira, who is recovering from a stroke.

The president of the Madeira regional government confirmed that Ronaldo was not suffering from the coronavirus.

And the 35-year-old has now taken practical steps by setting up the temporary hospitals and bearing all transport and living costs for medical staff to work 24 hours there.

Ronaldo's four-star hotel in Madeira is located close to the city's marina and boasts an infinity pool, gym, sauna and hot tub. The outdoors space offers sunset parties and DJ sets.

It is situated close to the CR7 Museum, which charts Ronaldo's trophy-laden career, and all guests get free admission.
