Charitable Cristiano Ronaldo sells Ballon d'Or award for N250m

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has auctioned one of his four Ballon d'Ors for a whopping €600,000 at a charity auction.

According to Marca, the sale of Ronaldo's 2013 Ballon d'Or to Idan Ofer - the richest man in Israel - raised the considerable sum, all of which will be donated to the charity.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Rio Ferdinand shared a dressing room for six years at Manchester United, playing at opposite ends of a team that won three league titles and a Champion's League.
