MR NICE GUY: Ronaldo auction's his 2013 Balon d'Or to rise Fund For Charity

Cristiano Ronaldo once again proved himself to be one of the nicest men in football by auctioning off one of his Balon d'Or trophies for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Portuguese superstar is synonymous with winning, and he's open about how much trophies mean to him, both team cups and individual awards.
But that hasn't stopped him from making a huge decision about his 2013 Ballon d'Or prize.

According to Spanish publication Marca, the Real Madrid forward raised an incredible £600,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which aims to give sick children the chance to realise their dreams, often before passing away.

The lucky buyer was millionaire Idan Ofer, who is Israel's richest person.

Marca's report goes on to state that the £600,000 fee will go straight to the foundation to help them make even more memories for children battling illness.

Ronaldo won the award ahead of Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery in 2013.

He scored an impressive 66 goals in 56 games for club and country throughout the year as well as sealing 2014 World Cup qualification for Portugal.

The former Manchester United winger famously stood on stage and broke down in tears as he collected the award.

 With Pele standing beside him, Ronaldo was thankful for his nomination and paid tribute to his family and teammates.
He will go down in history as one of the greatest.

Three Premier League titles, four Champions Leagues, two La Liga title, two Copa Del Reys, two League Cups, an FA Cup, three FIFA World Club Cups, a European Championship, 136 international caps, five Balon d'Ors and over 500 goals is some achievement.
