Cristiano Ronaldo's Christmas present from Georgina Rodriguez called 'pornographic' by Spanish politician
| Last updated
A gift that Cristiano Ronaldo received for Christmas from his partner Georgina Rodriguez has been labeled as 'pornographic' by a leading Spanish politician.
Rodriguez, 28, took to Instagram during the festive season and posted a video of her family's 'magic Christmas night'.
In the video, her kids can be seen opening their presents while Ronaldo was also surprised with a present of his own.
But Miguel Angel Revilla, President of the Autonomous Region of Cantabria, has blasted Rodriguez for the gift in a Spanish TV appearance.
So, what exactly was this 'controversial' gift?
Rodriguez surprised Ronaldo with a £250,000 Rolls Royce, which was wrapped with a massive red bow.
The former Manchester United star was evidently happy with his present, as his kids hopped in the back while he tested it out for the first time.
Ronaldo took it for a spin in Madrid on Thursday (29 December) as he took his family and friends out for dinner.
But Revilla was not impressed by the Instagram post, saying he didn't think it was appropriate given the current economic climate.
Speaking on a programme called Mas vale tarde on the Spanish TV channel La Sexta, Revilla said: "I thought the present was pornographic.
"With what people are experiencing at the moment, that these things comes out on TV it’s not moral. These types of attitudes seem like hard pornography."
This isn't the first time Rodriguez has gifted her other half with a flash car as for the football star's 37th birthday back in February, he was surprised with an eight-seater Cadillac Escalade sitting on his driveway.
That car is valued lower than the Rolls Royce though - starting at a still hefty £150,000.
We doubt money is no problem for Ronaldo though, especially considering he has just signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr worth £173 million a year.
The deal will make the football star the highest-paid sportsperson ever after leaving Manchester United just days before the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
His Manchester United deal was terminated after a controversial interview with Piers Morgan where he said he felt betrayed by the Club and had no respect for manager Erik ten Hag.
With the announcement he would be heading to the Middle East, Ronaldo was quoted by Al Nassr saying: "I am eager to experience a new football league in a different country. Al Nassr Club's vision is very inspiring.
"I am fortunate that I have won everything I set out to win in European football and feel now that this is the right moment to share my experience in Asia."
