Capping off a year of loss for so many amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, Cristiano Ronaldo took to Instagram on New Year’s Eve, to share a message of hope leading in to the new year.
“2020 was not an easy year, there’s no doubt about it,” the 35-year-old soccer superstar captioned a photo of himself, girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, and his four children: 2-year-old twins, Eva Maria and Mateo, 2-year-old daughter, Alana Martina, and 9-year-old son Cristiano Jr. “No one can be indifferent to the pain and suffering that COVID-19 brought upon the world.”
The caption continued: “But now it’s time to bounce back and show that, together, we can make a difference. Because no matter how hard is the fall, what really defines us is the way we get back on our feet and how fast we are ready to face new obstacles.”

The Juventus F.C. forward asked fans to think of the new year as a fresh start, one that would allow everyone to “become better versions” of themselves.
“So let’s try to turn 2021 into a turning point, a new beginning [sic], a fresh start. Because all of us – and I do mean all of us – can still become better versions of ourselves,” Ronaldo wrote. “And if we do it all together, that might actually be the secret to turn things around for the better.”
He ended the caption with: “Happy New Year! And may 2021 be a year to always [sic] remember for the best reasons! 🙏🏽❤️”
